LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., February 11, 2013 – Ron Lebow, a partner at The Greenberg, Dresevic, Hinrichsen, Iwrey, Kalmowitz, La Salle, Lebow & Pendleton Law Group, a division of The Health Law Partners, P.C., recently spoke to The Persian Medical Society with a presentation titled, “Mega-groups vs. Hospital Employment.” Founding Shareholder, Adrienne Dresevic made the announcement.
As the national health care landscape continues to change, physicians are considering new partnership and employment alternatives for better coordination and oversight of care, reduced costs and profit sharing opportunities. Two popular scenarios for small practices are to form a so-called “mega-group” with other physicians or for a hospital to acquire the practice. Speaking to an audience of 120 physicians, Lebow’s presentation focused on the fundamental differences between joining or forming a mega-group and employment with a hospital, from a business and legal perspective.
Lebow has extensive experience in negotiating, drafting and structuring business agreements for all types of health care practitioners, including physicians, dentists, chiropractors and podiatrists. He also represents hospitals to structure acquisition of medical practices. In addition to a prominent health care law practice, Lebow currently serves as Chair of the New York City Bar Association’s Health Law Committee and co-authored the third edition of The Legal Manual for Physicians published by the New York State Bar Association.
