Davis Wright has an experienced team of more than 40 attorneys dedicated to working with hospitals. We advise and represent hospital providers of all sizes, from multi-hospital health systems to individual community hospitals and university medical centers. Our attorneys have substantial experience advising religious and faith-based health systems in all strategic and legal matters concerning their organizations. We are a true industry team, staffed with experienced lawyers who provide general outside counsel on both a full-service or selective basis for hospitals across the country.
Because many of our health care team devote their practice exclusively on hospital issues, we are capable of delivering sophisticated, efficient counsel on a cost-effective basis. When hospital clients have questions, we can quickly provide practical, targeted answers without having to spend days of an associate’s time on research.
Our attorneys advise hospitals on a full range of concerns, including new services development, joint ventures, antitrust rules, health information technology initiatives, strategic planning, governance, business operations and physician recruitment. Our comprehensive services also include:
- Acquisitions and mergers
- Federal and state regulatory filings and approvals
- Regulatory due diligence

- Specialized labor and employment advice
- Medical staff credentialing and peer review

Our health care team works collaboratively with other attorneys in our labor and employment, tax, litigation, business transactions, real estate, antitrust, and intellectual property practice groups to provide seamless service that meets the varied and changing needs of our hospital clients.
We tailor our approach to meet specific organizational goals and measure success by the strength and longevity of our relationships with a wide variety of clients.
