Our Approach

Mintz's Hospitals & Health Systems Practice has been serving the industry for decades. We work with hospitals, health systems, academic medical centers, and the affiliated entities that comprise these systems, including teaching hospitals and medical schools.

Our team has handled transactions and strategic affiliations. We've defended hospitals and health systems in False Claims Act (FCA) investigations and litigation. And we've helped clients with complex regulatory matters, medical staff matters, tax-exempt bond issues, antitrust matters, and other sensitive issues. Members of our practice regularly supplement in-house legal teams by offering on-call counsel. We leverage the firm’s vast interdisciplinary industry experience to solve issues across topic areas — before they become problems.
