Diverse Experience – Trusted Counsel

Health Care

We at Thomson, Rhodes & Cowie, P.C., have represented health care clients and their insurers for over 30 years, and we have gained a reputation as being one of the premier health care law firms in Pennsylvania. We have molded our practice to meet the rapidly changing legal needs of the health care industry in the new millennium.

Throughout our history, we have provided sound legal counsel and effective litigation services to hospitals ranging in size from small, community-based facilities to large teaching institutions. As hospital counsel, we provide comprehensive legal services in the areas of employment law, provider and vendor contracts, practice acquisitions and joint ventures, medical staff bylaws and governance issues, antitrust, hospital policies and procedures, tax, real estate, insurance and self-insurance, and a multitude of other general corporate and transactional matters. We are at the forefront of emerging health care issues in managed care, third-party reimbursement and regulatory compliance.

Through effective counseling, we seek to reduce the likelihood of litigation. When litigation is unavoidable, however, we provide aggressive and highly effective services, defending health care providers’ interests in commercial, health care, employment, corporate and professional liability litigation. At Thomson, Rhodes & Cowie, we have successfully litigated matters on behalf of our hospital clients in all state and federal courts and before all administrative agencies.

We are committed to providing a comprehensive legal program that encompasses all health care and business concerns of our health care clients. Our goal is to achieve optimal legal results through sound guidance, solid business transactions and aggressive yet cost-effective litigation. Our firm is large enough to handle the sophisticated needs of our clients and small enough to provide responsive, efficient and personalized service.
