Regional Medical Group and Rural Hospital Expand Successful Collaboration

Regional Medical Group and Rural Hospital Expand Successful Collaboration

We worked with a large medical clinic in managing its legal and business relationships with local community hospitals. In one instance, a lasting affiliation relationship (that for decades has successfully included a jointly-owned ambulatory surgery center) was expanded to include joint ventures in other diagnostic and treatment service lines, with sites of service involving both clinic and hospital facilities.

In another community, the relationship with the hospital deteriorated to the point where we were engaged to explore independent, competing service capabilities and to advise the clinic and its physicians on their rights and responsibilities under medical staff rules, state law, and other applicable authorities.
