Team Member Spotlight

Drinker Biddle Health Care brings together 18 service areas addressing the legal and business challenges of health care providers across the country.

Drinker Biddle Health Care Industry Team combines cross-discipline experience with solid business and common sense to deliver seamless, client-focused service.

Our clients include regional and national hospitals, health systems, academic medical centers, community-based providers, professional associations, managed care organizations, vendors, and pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers.

We are helping clients redefine integrated care delivery models, melding experience with innovation in responding to shared savings and other performance-based payment models.

Efficient, high quality health care is not a new idea – but the path to that goal has been repaved by the Affordable Care Act. Maintaining patient access, improving care delivery, and managing shared risk are driving hospital and physician interest in exploring new models for collaboration.

In today’s environment, developing an effective strategy is vital to redefining and improving an organization’s value proposition, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to defining how efficient, high quality care will be delivered in the future.

Strategic affiliations and partnerships are integral to the competitiveness of almost every health care organization – whether a community hospital, a physician group practice, an academic medical center, or an integrated health system.

We work with clients on all phases of strategic transactions: conceptualization, negotiation, analysis and implementation.

Drinker Biddle Health Care has more than 250 hospital mergers, acquisitions and divestiture projects under our belts ranging in size from $2.5 to $700 million.

Our team understands the strategic issues and options, operational imperatives and pitfalls, financial requirements and financing options, medical staff and related physician relationships, and governance and management relationships that affect hospitals and health systems.
