BOSTON (June 23, 2011) — International law firm McDermott Will & Emery LLP represented Atrius Health in successful negotiations leading to Fallon Clinic becoming the sixth member of Atrius Health, a system of five non-profit community-based physician groups in Eastern Massachusetts. As part of the negotiations, McDermott was responsible for securing regulatory approvals for the affiliation, including the negotiation of an Assurance of Discontinuance with the Massachusetts Attorney General.
As a result of the negotiations, the Atrius Health Groups, including Fallon Clinic, will be the largest physician-led system in Massachusetts, with more than 1,000 physicians and 7,200 employees serving almost one million adult and pediatric patients throughout Eastern and Central Massachusetts. With decades of experience managing patient care under risk contracts, Atrius Health is positioned to be a national leader in the shift from fee-for-service to global payment and the formation of accountable care organizations.
The McDermott transaction team included partners Christopher M. Jedrey, Charles R. Buck and Ashley M. Fischer, and associate Carla A. R. Hine.
