HEALTH CARE

The health care industry is one of the more complex and important industries in the United States. Highly regulated and connected to the politics of health care reform and payment, the industry is currently addressing technology advances and the increasing demands of an aging population. Insuring and caring for patients is challenging work, and our health care industry clients need highly qualified and often innovative representation in multiple areas of law to manage the many moving parts of a modern health care organization.

Thompson Coburn’s Health Care Practice offers a wide range of legal services to health care organizations. Our practice is composed of a core of transactional, regulatory, and litigation attorneys who have accumulated years of success, knowledge and skill in advising health care clients on the complex business and regulatory realities they face on a daily basis.
