Health Care Transactions
We help providers structure, negotiate and implement important transactions.
Our attorneys work closely with hospitals, health systems, long-term care facilities, skilled nursing facilities, ambulatory surgery centers, medical practices and other types of health care providers in a wide range of transactions.

- Joint ventures, including physician joint ventures, as well as a range of service line joint ventures among for-profit and nonprofit partners (e.g., oncology, behavioral health, freestanding EDs, micro-hospital, rehab hospitals and others)
- Asset acquisitions
- Members substitution transactions and other forms of affiliation, including majority and minority membership interest affiliations
- Practice and facility acquisitions and divestures
- Health system reorganizations
- Partnerships and networks (including Clinically Integrated Networks and Accountable Care Organizations)
