Tom Stukes represents hospital systems, academic medical centers and other health care providers and provider networks throughout the Southeast.
Tom has handled over 100 acquisitions, sales, mergers, consolidations, conversions and restructurings of public, nonprofit and for-profit clients and has been instrumental in forming a number of the largest hospital systems in North Carolina.
Health care providers have engaged Tom to form joint ventures among hospitals, physicians and other health care providers, including imaging centers, ambulatory surgical centers, managed care networks, home health agencies and technology companies. One of the largest hospital chains in the country has consulted Tom on the development of innovative joint ventures.
Hospitals and other health care clients regularly consult with Tom in connection with government investigations and voluntary disclosures for violations of Medicare and other governmental laws regulating the health care industry. In the last five years, he has supervised the voluntary repayment of over $10 million to federal and state governments with respect to billing irregularities without governmental action being brought against the affected providers.
Academic medical centers across the country have consulted with Tom about financial transactions and arrangements, compliance with government regulations, and the operation and reimbursement for graduate medical education programs.
