Health Care Law

Health Care providers and facilities are subject to myriad government regulations, compliance issues, certifications, licensing, and disciplinary actions. The attorneys at Witherup Allen Law can help your health care business to ensure regulatory compliance or secure licenses to operate or expand. We can also defend you when you or your business is under investigation or facing disciplinary action.

Our experience includes representing health care facilities in a variety of regulatory challenges and licensing issues. In these matters, we have represented hospitals, assisted living facilities, nursing homes, ambulatory surgery facilities, alcohol and drug treatment programs, home health and hospice care facilities, and a variety of health care practice groups. We have represented both applicants and interested parties in navigating Maryland’s complex Certificate of Need (CON) process. We have advised clients involved in sales and acquisitions (change of ownership, or CHOWs) of health care facilities, ensuring that they obtain the regulatory approvals and licenses necessary to operate during and after the change in ownership.

We have represented individual health care providers facing investigations, complaints, or disciplinary action before Maryland licensing boards, including the Maryland Board of Physicians, Board of Nursing, Board of Dental Examiners, Board of Chiropractic Examiners, Board of Social Work Examiners, and Board of Examiners of Nursing Home Administrators. We help providers to ensure compliance with licensing regulations, federal and Maryland state self-referral laws, and anti-kickback laws.
