Healthcare

Keith & Associates provides a wide range of legal healthcare services primarily related to the long-term care industry and specifically tailored to clients’ individual needs. Our attorneys have in-depth knowledge of the complex, rapidly changing and highly regulated healthcare industry.

We counsel clients regarding the acquisition, disposition, closure, leasing and construction of skilled nursing facilities. We work with clients to obtain the best results on issues such as representations and warranties, indemnification obligations in the event of a breach of a representation or warranty, compliance with Federal Stark, Anti-Kickback and HIPAA statutes, state licensure, certificate of need requirements and the billing of private and governmental payers. We also represent skilled nursing facilities in obtaining traditional and HUD financing for acquisitions, construction or refinancing.

We represent the executive team of an association consisting of 350 skilled nursing facilities to assure compliance with the complex maze of federal and state laws and regulations. We also assist with contracts on behalf of the facilities with insurance companies, managed care organizations, service providers and vendors.

In addition, we assist physicians and dentists with tax, business, estate planning and practice issues, as well as with the purchase and sale of medical and dental practices. We also help them deal with critical issues associated with the transfer of a practice, including valuation, non-compete agreements and employment contracts.

Our expertise in tax, business and real estate allows us to provide a broad spectrum of services to our healthcare clients.
