At Wiggin and Dana, we recognize that the health care industry is ever-evolving. Medical advancements, changes in reimbursement, and new care delivery models are changing the relationships among physicians, hospitals and other health care institutions, as well as the relationships between and among health care providers, payors and companies that provide products and services to them. As these relationships evolve, the already complex regulatory framework in which these multi-faceted relationships exist continues to evolve as well.

By combining our in-depth knowledge of the health care industry and the intricate regulatory requirements that govern its activities with our extensive experience with all aspects of business transactions, we are able to help diverse health care clients —from hospitals to home health agencies; community doctors to academic medical centers; managed care organizations to providers of cost management products and services —invest, grow, restructure and prosper.

All sorts of health care entities, including providers, payors and organizations providing related products and services, count on us to assist them in structuring their business relationships in compliance with federal and state regulations, including licensing requirements, fraud and abuse laws, referral and reimbursement rules, and antitrust constraints. Our corporate expertise, combined with our regulatory experience, allows us to deftly manage all aspects of a health care transaction -- from structuring relationships to documentation, financing, regulatory approvals and beyond.

Whether you plan to form a joint-venture, establish a new service, finance a new venture, acquire another entity, or structure an integrated new model for delivery of care, we stand ready to help with one of the region's largest health care legal teams.
