What Our Clients Say

The attorneys at Seigfreid Bingham understand our organization, our competitive market, and the pressures we face. I can count on them to provide practical advice and to have my back when I need to stand firm that our organization should not take certain action. I can also count on them to see another lawful way to achieve our organization’s objectives when there is one.
Tim Belisle, Senior Vice President, Compliance Officer/General Counsel, Mountain States Health Alliance
Seigfreid Bingham has a top-notch legal team that understands the sometimes complex legal and business challenges we face as a small, rural provider.

Examples of Our Work

Health Midwest

We are well known for our lead role in the sale of Health Midwest to Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), the largest conversion of a nonprofit hospital system in U.S. history. Our firm began providing legal counsel to Health Midwest when it had just one hospital. It grew into the largest health care delivery system in the Kansas City area and was eventually acquired in 2002 by Hospital Corporation of America for $1.125 billion. We represented Health Midwest in the transaction and assisted them in every step of the process, from development of the deal to due diligence and through final execution of the conversion and acquisition documents.

Mountain States Health Alliance

Our health care attorneys played a critical role in the creation of Mountain States Health Alliance (MSHA). Today, we provide the entity with legal advice on a wide range of topics including physician employment, health care law compliance, working and contracting with independent physician groups, participation in new payment models such as Accountable Care Organizations and bundled payment programs, participation in provider networks, and mergers and acquisitions.

Physician Practice Services

When physician practices decide to sell to hospitals or health care systems, effective representation is necessary to achieve the optimal start to the new relationship. Our health care attorneys have represented both hospitals and physicians in many of these transactions, so we know what is important to both parties and how to achieve common ground.
