Hospitals and their medical staff have a unique relationship, and with that comes challenges. Our team advises hospitals, healthcare institutions, medical executive committees, and medical staff associations on a range of medical staff and professional licensure matters.
Nixon Peabody can partner with you to navigate the complexity of the hospital and medical staff relationship. We have extensive experience in reviewing and revising medical staff by-laws, rules, and regulations as well as assessing them for compliance with regulatory and accreditation requirements. We handle a range of issues, including medical staff investigations, impaired professionals, and corrective actions. We counsel on fair hearing and appellate review proceedings, as well as defend against lawsuits filed by physicians and other licensed professionals against hospitals, their administrations, and medical staff leadership. We are where you need us to be, at the forefront of the industry, understanding—and mitigating—any potential risk you face.
