Health Care

The business of health care is more complicated than it has ever been. Myriad new federal laws, regulatory and insurance requirements, reduced payments for health care services, increased complexity of data management and operational systems, and increases in costs squeeze health care professionals from multiple directions. Every health care practitioner will be confronted with compliance, employment and business issues during the life of their practice.  Every solution will, like a piece of clockwork, affect other areas of your practice.

The Ezold Law Firm, P.C. provides solutions. We are a seven-attorney firm with attorneys licensed in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, with a sophisticated practice in health care, employment and business law. The breadth of services provided by The Ezold Law Firm, P.C. is normally found in larger firms, with larger overhead and higher fee structures. We provide broad legal services because we believe that the complexity of today’s health care industry demands an integrated client-centered approach across the regulatory and business continuum.  By analogy, one cannot treat a symptom in isolation without understanding the system at issue.

Our clients are physicians, physician groups, ambulatory surgery centers, specialty hospitals, imaging centers, dentists, nurses, chiropractors, physical therapists, non-profit groups and ancillary services providers who have health care, employment and business law issues arising out of state and federal law.
