Health Care Law

Whitehead Law offers unique health care services from establishing a medical practice, operating a practice, acquiring a practice, either as a physician group or hospital organization, and to establishing best practices for managing compliance issues and risk management, and audits for early detection and prevention of health care fraud and abuse. We also act as general counsel for many small to medium-sized health care providers. We have been nick-named at times as the “doctor’s” lawyer due to the large number of physician practice representation, but also represent hospital organizations and their component parts.

Some health care providers prefer to keep us on retainer, while others depend upon our team of attorneys for very specific issues.

Our team of affiliated lawyers has extensive experience in all areas of health care. We identify important state and federal laws and regulations as they relate to patient care and staff conduct, while understanding and addressing your health care issues from a business perspective.

We handle matters related to health care law, business law, liability defense and appeals, fraud and abuse, professional board appearances, corporate compliance/risk management, HIPAA privacy and data security regulations, and employment law.

  • Skilled nursing facilities

  • Physical therapists
