Physician Agreements

Our team is well-versed in the health care regulatory and state/federal income tax implications of a wide variety of agreements between hospitals and physicians; in particular, recruitment agreements, medical director agreements and direct employment agreements. We draft and negotiate physician contracts and help hospital administrators create compensation and profit-sharing arrangements. We also work with health care entities to recruit and retain physicians by developing appropriate and cost-effective incentives, from income guarantees and sign-on bonuses to marketing and relocation allowances.
