Recruitment

Recruiting a physician to your practice is a large expense that is sometimes subsidized by a local hospital. We can help your practice to understand the advantages and disadvantages associated with such a venture, and how the Stark law applies in this situation.

Considerations:

Is your practice prepared to repay to the hospital any money earned in excess of the physician’s loan?
What exactly is the hospital’s guarantee designed to supplement?
Does the practice intend to employ the physician with a non-compete?
Can your practice afford to repay the loan to the hospital on the terms contained in the Recruitment Agreement?

For adventurous physicians starting a practice, finding a location is the first step. For those with a busy surgical practice being close to a hospital is ideal and many hospitals own medical office buildings and can offer nice incentives to lease space. For the even more adventurous, finding a medical office condo is an option.
We work closely with healthcare real estate experts who know the ins and outs of medical office space transactions and how to find the right fit for your medical practice.

Regardless of the phase your business is in, when healthcare providers lease space fee splitting, Stark Law and the Anti Kickback Statute are considerations.
