Poyner Spruill Welcomes Education Law Practice Group

Business, Contracts, & Joint Ventures

Forming a health care organization can be daunting. Whether a partnership, corporation, or limited liability company, we help our clients understand the advantages and restrictions that apply to the various corporate structures available to them, and we help them select for-profit or not-for-profit status and C-corp or S-corp tax status.

Clients come to us to draft and file all of the organizational documents, articles, charters, bylaws, registrations, applications, and minutes that 21st Century health care organizations need. We also handle employment issues, non-competition matters, and problems arising from departing employees. Our team understands risk management and corporate compliance strategies focused on avoiding or minimizing potential regulatory penalties.

We are adept at creating health care organizations for special business purposes. We have set up new organizations to compete for Certificates of Need, operate radiation oncology facilities, dialysis centers, and ambulatory surgery centers, provide in-home medical care, and operate managed care networks. We’ve also assisted in the purchase, sale, merger, and restructuring of health care organizations ranging from large hospitals to small practices, and have negotiated joint ventures between various providers. We understand the anti-trust, self-referral, anti-kickback, and corporate practice of medicine and other regulatory issues in these transactions.
