Peter Millock is a senior member of the firm’s Healthcare practice.
My practice encompasses hospital-to-hospital alignments; affiliations among physicians, hospitals, long-term care providers and mental health and disability services providers; purchases and sales of nursing homes, clinics and medical practices; enforcement matters before New York State agencies; certificate of need and other applications requiring New York State agency approval; and Medicaid and other payor audits.
I have crafted innovative healthcare arrangements in New York, including the first alignment between a New York and an out-of-state hospital, the first alignment between a Catholic and a secular hospital, one of the first affiliations of long-term care providers and one of the first applications for an assisted living residence in New York State.
Prior to working at the firm, I served for 15 years as general counsel to the New York State Department of Health and am very familiar with its regulations, procedures and protocols. I routinely appear before state regulators.
I also participate in the development of state health regulatory policies and health-related state legislation. For example, I am contributing to deliberations on barriers to private investment in New York health services providers, the future of New York’s certificate of need process, parent/subsidiary relationships in hospital systems and corporate practice of medicine prohibitions. I am a past Chair of the New York State Bar Association’s Health Law Section.
I expect a dramatic increase in alignments, mergers, consolidations and affiliations among healthcare providers of all types to meet the challenges of managed care, cost containment, healthcare reform and market forces.
