King & Spalding has extensive experience counseling hospital providers of all sizes, from individual community hospitals to large, multi-hospital integrated health systems, as well as academic medical centers and teaching hospitals.  We also assist large physician groups, physician networks, home health, hospice and senior living service providers.

Our attorneys regularly advise health systems and other providers in matters relating to strategic planning, new service development, joint venturing, antitrust concerns, risk management, physician recruitment, physician credentialing and peer review, Medicare and Medicaid billing and reimbursement and commercial revenue cycle enhancement. King & Spalding has extensive experience with provider acquisitions and mergers, including the handling of federal and state regulatory filings and approvals, regulatory diligence and review and investigation by the Federal Trade Commission.

Difficult managed care contracting negotiations, sometimes requiring contract terminations, sophisticated public communications programs and litigation, require legal support from specialized attorneys with deep experience and sound judgment. Our healthcare lawyers and litigators are frequently engaged for work in this area.

King & Spalding also assists health system and other provider clients with compliance issues, federal investigations, managed care disputes and other litigation involving reimbursement issues. Health industry clients turn to King & Spalding for specialized advice in connection with labor and employment issues, environmental compliance and tax-related matters. Our Healthcare attorneys work seamlessly with the Labor & Employment, Environmental, Tax, Government Relations, Litigation and FDA & Life Sciences attorneys in our Healthcare Industry Practice to provide multi-disciplinary representation to serve all the legal needs of our clients.

With the nation’s largest healthcare practice and attorneys with many years of practice entirely dedicated to healthcare law and health industry business, King & Spalding has the depth of experience to counsel hospitals, health systems and other providers in resolving the most significant legal issues that they face.
