Healthcare Joint Ventures & Syndications

Our team has led clients through hundreds of complex healthcare joint venture arrangements worth billions of dollars. In the last four years, we have developed eight arrangements uniting for-profit and nonprofit entities as this trend has grown in popularity. Our top priority in such matters is to provide creative legal strategies that maximize the positive business advantages, whether clinical or administrative, while minimizing risk. An example of that focus is in our recent work involving a public hospital company in a joint venture arrangement with five nonprofit hospitals designed to operate more efficiently, enhance outcomes and improve access for their patients.

We have extensive experience in syndications and private placements of securities involving hospital systems, long-term care facilities, outpatient service providers, ancillary service providers, independent practice associations, managed care organizations and health information and technology entities. We also have worked with investment bankers and equity and debt financing sources across the country.

We have a particular understanding in representing hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, dialysis companies and other outpatient service providers in joint ventures with physicians. Our engagements provide thorough due diligence reviews to uncover potential regulatory exposure associated with acquired entities or joint venture partners.
