Michal Ovadia is an associate in Nixon Peabody’s Health Care practice group. Michal provides counsel to health care clients in regulatory and transactional matters.
I represent health care providers big and small, ranging from large health care systems and medical schools to home care agencies. I counsel clients on federal and state regulatory matters alike, including compliance with HIPAA and state-issued mandates. I also guide academic medical centers through the process of attaining and maintaining ACGME and AOA accreditation of their graduate medical education programs.
I focus on facilitating deals for New York-based hospitals and private practices, and ensure that they remain compliant with the complex laws and regulations that occupy the health care space. I also draft corporate documents and conduct due diligence so that our clients can accurately and efficiently close deals.
I also represent a psychiatric hospital in weekly mental hygiene hearings.
The deadline for AOA-accredited programs to comply with the ACGME’s Next Accreditation System is fast approaching and will bring with it unique challenges, both for the programs making the change and for the ACGME as an accrediting body. I look forward to helping my clients make the transition.
