Evan Goldfarb named a 2017 Women’s Justice Award winner

April 4, 2017

Thompson Coburn health care partner Evan Goldfarb has been named a Women’s Justice Award winner by Missouri Lawyers Media.

Evan will be honored in the Business Practitioner category, which recognizes “female business practitioners who fulfill the ideals of leadership, professionalism and a passion for improving the quality of the justice system or contributing to the betterment of the legal profession.” 

She is the co-chair of Thompson Coburn’s Health Care group and a member of the firm’s six-member Executive Committee and its Management Committee. In late 2016, Evan was also named the vice-chair of the firm’s entire Corporate department, which is comprised of 17 distinct practice groups and more than 190 attorneys.

For more than 20 years, Evan has served as a trusted advisor to hospitals, health care systems, long-term care facilities, health plans, physicians, and other businesses involved in the health care industry. She has led work on major transactions for many health care systems, including the recent affiliation of Mercy and St. Anthony’s Medical Center and New Mexico-based Presbyterian Healthcare Services’ development of a joint venture Medicaid plan in North Carolina.

She is also the vice chair of the board for Gateway to Hope, a St. Louis nonprofit that provides financial assistance for breast cancer patients in need.

Evan and the other Women’s Justice Award winners will be honored April 27 at an event at the Four Season Hotel.
