Healthcare Transactions

Acquiring and selling healthcare facilities involves complex regulatory, licensure and contractual issues. For over 25 years, Whitaker Chalk has actively been engaged in structuring numerous acquisitions and sales of general acute care hospitals, psychiatric hospitals, long-term care facilities, nursing homes and home health agencies in various jurisdictions throughout the United States. As part of our representation in healthcare entity sales and acquisition transactions, we are frequently asked to assist in conducting various aspects of the due diligence process involving contractual review, litigation assessment, employee issues, license and regulatory compliance issues. Almost all transactions included negotiating loan agreements with financing sources like complex loan covenants and collateralization issues, and they often required in-depth explanations of issues unique to the healthcare industry. For situations like these, you need the in-depth healthcare knowledge that Whitaker Chalk can provide.
