Health Law

The Health Law Group at Knox McLaughlin Gornall & Sennett, P.C. has extensive knowledge of the healthcare industry and the ever-changing issues that affect it. We have years of experience working with and defending hospitals, healthcare professionals and long-term care providers. As a result, we are able to help you capitalize on opportunities and anticipate and resolve challenges before they arise.

Regulatory Compliance

Regulations governing the healthcare industry become more numerous and complex each year. Members of our firm are knowledgeable about the various regulations and nuances of HIPAA, the PA Health Care Facilities Act, and Department of Health and Human Services and PA Department of Health rules and regulations, as well as various statutory claims under state and federal law. We provide counsel on fraud and abuse issues, Anti Kickback regulations and safe harbors, Stark Law regulations, and other similar regulations affecting healthcare entities. We understand how these regulations affect you.

Risk Management

Healthcare providers are particularly vulnerable to malpractice claims. When these matters occur, they can quickly consume your time, effort and financial resources. Our litigation attorneys can provide sound advice on how to prevent and avoid incidents that may result in claims – saving you time and money so you can focus on patient care.

Claims Management & Litigation

In the event that you do face an incident or claim, our litigators can help you manage it. Whether it is a claim of medical malpractice, a contractual issue or a labor problem, we are experienced in navigating the litigation and dispute resolution process. In order to get the best result, we will investigate an incident before it becomes a claim. When appropriate, we will seek to resolve claims through arbitration. And when necessary, we will protect your interests in court.

We work closely with the firm’s Labor & EmploymentIntellectual Property & Technology, andWorkers’ Compensation Groups, among others, to provide the comprehensive legal resources to meet each client’s unique needs.
