Jim Henry has extensive experience representing a broad spectrum of health care providers, including hospitals, senior housing and long term care facilities, physicians and physician practices, hospices, home health providers, pharmacies, and medical equipment providers. His practice encompasses operational counseling, regulatory advice, and protecting the rights of health care providers before various regulatory agencies and in state and federal courts. Jim regularly provides advice and counsel in matters relating to Stark law, the Anti-Kickback Statute, HIPAA, contract arrangements, survey and certification, licensing, reimbursement and others.

Jim believes that a key element of serving clients in his area of practice is being accessible, because operational and regulatory issues often arise outside of normal business hours and successful resolution may be dependent on an immediate response. He also believes that he can best serve clients by gaining a full understanding of their business objectives and always keeping those objectives at the forefront when providing advice as to a course of action. Jim’s advice to clients is informed both by his in-depth experience in representing health care providers and a strong understanding of operational and financial management that is derived from his past experience as a business executive.
