Healthcare Law

The healthcare system in the United States continues to experience rapid and comprehensive change, creating legal complexities in regulatory compliance and increasing business competition for healthcare providers. McNees Wallace & Nurick’s Healthcare Law Group attorneys have more than simply knowledge of the laws affecting the industry; we have an understanding of how to make them work for our clients. Since McNees’ Healthcare Law Group attorneys practice primarily in health law, they are able to provide timely, cost-effective advice and counsel to healthcare clients.

Our clients include hospitals, health systems, physician groups, senior care facilities, ambulatory surgery centers, homecare and hospice providers, healthcare professional trade associations, pharmacies, behavioral health providers, ambulance companies, and health information technology companies.

We believe that our clients should be able to concentrate on the business of healthcare rather than the complexities of the latest regulations. Our clients depend on us for assistance in a variety of areas including:

  • Formation of Accountable Care Organizations
  • Healthcare mergers, sales and acquisitions
  • Healthcare joint ventures
    • Healthcare contracts
    • Accountable Care
    • Third Party Payer Contracts
    • Bundling Initiatives
    • Gainsharing
    • Software License and Hosting Agreements
  • Medical staff matters: disciplinary hearings, credentialing and peer review
