Jennifer M. Cormano

Jennifer Cormano represents health care providers, including hospitals, physician groups, academic medical centers, surgery centers, accountable care organizations and other organizations affiliated with the health care industry.

What do you focus on?

I focus on hospital/physician alignment strategies, joint ventures, mergers, acquisitions and other strategic transactions. My practice includes providing analysis and counsel on health care fraud and abuse issues and regulatory compliance matters. I advise both for-profit and nonprofit clients on corporate governance and formation matters, from the creation of their corporate entity to its dissolution, including companies with multi-state health care operations.

What do you see on the horizon?

I’m thinking about opportunities for hospitals and other institutional providers to partner with physicians and other professionals to share in the mission to bring affordable high quality care to the communities they serve.
