Jackson Walker has the experience and resources to help our healthcare clients with all their legal needs. We help physicians, hospitals, healthcare systems, and other medical providers create, change, or grow their practice through formation, acquisitions, mergers, affiliate agreements, and alliances. We also help with the creation of new relationships with relevant providers, developing financing strategies best suited to their current needs and future growth. We partner with a diverse healthcare clientele, counseling them on a full range of operational matters, including contract negotiations, labor and employment issues, managed care contracting strategies, and measures to increase efficiency and reduce costs. Our attorneys work with our clients to apply for, secure, and comply with licensure, certification, and accreditation requirements and counsel them on the protocols and processes needed to comply with privacy and confidentiality rules. Our Healthcare team is particularly skilled at helping healthcare providers navigate the payor and reimbursement landscape, creating and implementing plans that maximize the likelihood of securing prompt and timely payment and reimbursements.
