Thompson Coburn is pleased to announce that health care attorney Tonya Oliver Rose has rejoined the firm as a partner in our St. Louis office.
Tonya has extensive experience in health law and policy. She previously practiced in the health care group at Thompson Coburn from 2008-2012 and during her career has also worked within major regional health care systems including Allina Health, headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where she served as Vice President and Deputy General Counsel and, most recently, BJC HealthCare, headquartered in St. Louis.
Tonya advises clinical and operational teams; legal, compliance and regulatory leaders; and executives and boards on a wide range of regulatory, transactional and operational issues. She has represented clients before government agencies related to government audits, investigations, self-disclosures, public policy and licensure matters. She routinely advises clients in developing and maintaining effective compliance programs, and on a myriad of federal and state regulatory and compliance issues, including health care fraud and abuse laws, Medicare/Medicaid reimbursement, health information data and privacy and provider and health plan licensing and operations.
In addition, she has deep experience with a multitude of health care transactional matters – ranging from routine service agreements to major acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures and cross-sector collaborations.
In her roles as in-house counsel and as a trusted adviser to in-house teams, Tonya has been on the front lines of navigating many of the most impactful issues facing the health care industry today. With her return to Thompson Coburn, Tonya is excited to once again be a part of this health care team. “I’m looking forward to collaborating with both new and longtime clients to find sensible, strategic and holistic solutions to their legal, regulatory and business challenges,” she said.
Tonya earned her law degree from Washington University in St. Louis and holds a bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of Texas at Austin.
