Baker Donelson’s Health Law Department is unique not only in its depth, but also in its design: it is structured around our clients. Dedicated client teams focus on hospitals and healthcare systems, long-term care providers, outpatient surgery centers, complex medical groups, end-stage kidney disease, rehabilitation, and the wide range of enterprise that make up our healthcare ecosystem. By design, we are committed to developing a broad, detailed and intimate knowledge of the healthcare industry and the segments in which our clients work.

With a public policy team based in Washington, DC, Baker Donelson’s health law department also helps our clients look to the future.
