As innovative treatments proliferate and cost-effectiveness becomes paramount, healthcare is increasingly being delivered in the sub-acute space. Interest in specialty pharmacy, home health, hospice, therapy, behavioral health, residential care, day care and long-term care is at an all-time high, creating tremendous potential. At the forefront of this market expansion, we offer strategic, creative advice to help forward-thinking leaders capitalize on burgeoning opportunities.
We’ll help you overcome challenges and seize opportunity.
Possibility abounds for strategic clients who seek to expand on their existing lines of service, as well as for financial clients who see the growing value of sub-acute providers. At the same time, investors, owners and operators of public and private, for-profit and nonprofit service providers face a host of challenges, including evolving consumer demands, increased regulatory involvement, shifting reimbursement models, new delivery systems and technologies, and related business and legal hurdles.
We provide practical, multidisciplinary counsel on the myriad legal, regulatory, reimbursement and policy issues associated with the management and operation of sub-acute providers, payors and their business partners, as well as investors, real estate investment trusts (REITs) and lenders.
