Health Care

In an era when health care providers can incur millions of dollars in fines resulting from regulatory non-compliance and whistleblower lawsuits, it's important to work with a law firm that understands the complex issues facing the industry. GrayRobinson has assembled a team of health care lawyers who understand the unique legal considerations of physicians, hospitals and other medical providers. This experienced group of attorneys applies appropriate principles of general health care law, corporate, reimbursement, securities, and tax law to each situation.

Our health care lawyers represent numerous hospitals, nursing homes, physicians, physician groups, ambulatory surgery centers, imaging centers, home health agencies and many other health care providers. There are over 30 attorneys in the health care practice group who concentrate their practices on a wide range of legal matters including compliance, fraud and abuse, private health insurance, physician self-referral, HIPAA, false claims, physician discipline, managed care contracting, antitrust, and medical staff issues.

We serve as general counsel to a major national health care provider with hospitals and other facilities in 10 states, and have extensive experience in the issues involved in physician-hospital joint ventures. We also serve as general counsel for several hospital districts in Florida as well as representing a large national public for profit hospital organization. We represent hospital-based physician groups and advise them concerning their exclusive professional service agreements with hospitals. Our health care lawyers are also involved with the formation, sale, dissolution and restructuring of joint ventures to comply with Medicare fraud and abuse law, Safe Harbor regulations, Stark legislation, the Florida Patient Self-Referral Act and Florida fee-splitting issues.
