Spencer Fane embraces a commitment to providing experienced and informed counsel to health care clients, helping them navigate unprecedented change throughout the industry in a manner that also protects their ability to focus on what matters most — providing quality patient care.
From large health systems and hospitals to specialty providers and solo physician practices, we understand issues providers face related to ongoing changes in health care access, Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements, health information technology, and government fraud investigations. The evolutions in these areas continue to force facilities to re-envision operations, and Spencer Fane develops a strong relationship with health care leaders to keep their operations in compliance and avoid unnecessary litigation.
Our attorneys regularly advise clients on health care matters ranging from real estate and environmental matters to litigation and financial services, allowing us to provide coverage on any type of matter a health care operation faces.
We understand the unique needs for medical facilities of all sizes and can offer strategies and serve as a resource when they encounter increased challenges due to compliance and operational costs that threatens viability. Spencer Fane recognizes the great impact health care clients have on the lives of their patients, and we take great pride in work that assists facilities in transforming communities. In the case of one hospital, we helped the client to create a new emergency room, saving jobs and preserving health care options for a small community. We also successfully defended a hospital in a high-profile qui tam whistleblower case, protecting the operation’s livelihood and reputation.
The future of a client’s health care business is often at stake when we start a relationship, and our team prides itself on responsiveness to critical issues. We diligently work to quickly and efficiently comprehend a client’s unique needs and objectives, then collaborate with leaders to chart the most efficient course to reach a successful outcome.
