Health Care

The practice of medicine is a vital service in our society and a heavily regulated business.

Health Care businesses, which include individual physician practices, medical group practices, outpatient
diagnostic and surgical facilities, acute care hospitals ranging from critical access facilities to major
trauma centers, and health plans and insurance companies, need many of the legal services that all
businesses of comparable size require. And we provide expert, experienced legal advice and assistance
in human resources, bank financings, office leases, construction projects, real estate development,
equipment purchasing and leasing, contracting, and business and partnership formation.

But we also understand health care from the inside. One of our founding members, Roger Saydack,
recently returned to the firm after seven years on the executive team of one of Oregon’s leading
health care delivery systems where his responsibilities included operations, strategy and legal affairs. So
we have first-hand experience with a wide-range of health care law issues including:

  • Certificate of need
  • Medical Staff issues
  • Corporate Governance
  • Medicare Fraud and Abuse
  • Compliance
  • Licensing of Health Care Facilities
  • Healthcare Mergers/Acquisitions/Joint Ventures
  • Construction and Leasing of Healthcare Facilities
  • Emergency Department Call Contracts
  • Hospital/Medical Group Service Agreements
  • Physician Employment Contracts
  • Insurance and Managed Care Contracts
  • Collaborative Care Organizations/Accountable Care Organizations
  • Medical Group Buy-Sell Agreements
  • Physician Recruiting
  • Estate Planning for Medical Professionals
