Hospitals and their Medical Staffs: A Complex and Sometimes Contentious Relationship

Presented by ACC's Health Law Committee and Sponsored by Foley & Lardner LLP In spite of a rapidly changing health care environment, hospitals still rely on physicians for their institutional well-being, and physicians still rely on hospitals in many important respects. The ever-changing healthcare landscape is placing increasing strains on hospitals and physicians, however, and while both perceive the need to respond quickly and without constraint to market and regulatory opportunities and threats - they often do not respond to opportunities and threats (or even perceive the opportunities and threats) in the same way. The hospital/medical staff relationship can be an enormously useful vehicle to build collaborative relationships and foster strategic, successful change; or it can be a roadblock. Laurie Weinstein, Managing Counsel at The Permanente Medical Group, and Alan Einhorn, Of Counsel with Foley & Lardner LLP, the Health Law Committee's sponsor law firm, will explore the hospital/medical staff dynamic, including the legal considerations, constraints and processes that govern changes in medical staff rights, obligations and governance, and some of the emerging issues that are confronting hospitals and medical staffs in their changing world. Alan Einhorn, Of Counsel, Foley & Lardner Laurie Weinstein, Managing Counsel, The Permanente Medical Group
