SOUTHFIELD, Mich., February 25, 2013 – Founding Shareholder Robert Iwrey of Southfield, Mich.-based The Health Law Partners, recently co-wrote a whitepaper published by the State Bar of Michigan on licensing procedures and investigations for health care providers titled, “Licensure & Certification: Process & Investigation.” Founding Shareholder Carey Kalmowitz made the announcement.
As a co-author, Iwrey’s chapter provided fellow attorneys with an outline of the processes followed by Michigan’s Bureau of Health Care Services with regard to investigations and prosecutions of health care providers that allegedly violate Michigan’s Public Health Code. The chapter also reviews the collateral effects that are associated with licensing sanctions.
