Due to the constant evolution and complexity of the healthcare market, the extensive regulatory oversight by federal and state agencies, and its sheer size, it is critical to use a firm that understands this challenging, complicated, and dynamic industry.
At HSSK, our professionals are experienced in all aspects of the healthcare industry as operators, consultants, expert witnesses and valuators. We have performed thousands of healthcare valuation and litigation engagements involving a broad spectrum of businesses, including physician practices, ambulatory surgical centers, hospitals, imaging centers, renal centers, home care services and various outpatient service facilities.
We serve a wide variety of clients from the large multi-specialty groups to the solo practitioner; large publicly traded healthcare companies to single facility hospitals; and for-profit and not-for profit systems. We also work closely with our attorney clients, including health law, family law, tax, and litigation attorneys.
HSSK professionals have been involved in the operating and financial turnaround of health care businesses. From determining appropriate patient service and support personnel staffing ratios to cash flow maximization through CMS and private billing procedural enhancements to implementing modern cash flow management techniques, our personnel have the experience needed in a crisis situation. To quote a judge presiding over one case where one of our senior people served as the Trustee:
"I view the confirmation of the plan as, you know, very, very much due to your hard work and competence and Ms. Mathews, the same thing."1
