Christopher Browning represents health care providers ranging from integrated institutional health care systems to solo practitioners. His clients include hospital systems, surgery centers, medical equipment providers, nursing homes, physician practices, dental practices and new physicians.
I focus my practice in matters involving corporate transactions, state and federal regulatory compliance, professional and facility licensure and general corporate issues.
I represent clients in corporate acquisitions and formations of hospitals, surgery centers, nursing homes, home health agencies, assisted living facilities, physician groups and dental practices. I assist them in general corporate matters as well, including contract drafting and negotiation, governance issues and corporate planning.
I counsel clients on Medicare, Medicaid and other third-party payor enrollment, payment issues and general compliance matters and advise them on Stark and Anti-Kickback issues in addition to regulatory compliance in transactional matters.
I’ve represented clients regarding professional, facility and equipment licensure matters. I also help clients obtain approvals from state and federal agencies in connection with acquisitions and certificates of need for new health care facilities and equipment.
I’m following the ultimate impact of health care reform efforts on the existing payment systems and the delivery of high quality patient care.
