Healthcare & Wellbeing
A well-functioning healthcare sector is an essential part of modern society. The Covid-19 pandemic, and the pressure on the healthcare system that has arisen as a result, has underlined this importance once again. The sector faces enormous challenges and needs to constantly evolve. Healthcare institutions struggle with funding issues and staff shortages, must adapt to ever-increasing levels of cooperation with other healthcare institutions, and must meet modern demands for innovation and digitization. The sector is also highly regulated. Healthcare institutions must constantly anticipate new laws and regulations, for example around governance, compliance, and privacy. In this context, supervisors, directors and healthcare professionals must tackle increasingly complex issues. Thorough legal advice is therefore essential.
Experience in healthcare & wellbeing
Pot Jonker has traditionally focused on Healthcare & Wellbeing, ensuring we have in-depth knowledge and experience within the sector. Above all, we care about the sector and believe wholeheartedly in its relevance to society. As a result, many hospitals, general practitioners, medical specialists, laboratories, mental health institutions, youth and home care providers, care homes and other healthcare institutions receive valued assistance from our specialists.
We advise healthcare institutions regarding mergers & acquisitions, joint ventures and other forms of cooperation, financing issues, governance, compliance, employment law, employee participation, real estate, privacy and IT. Our specialists support healthcare institutions in their relationships with governments, insurers and external supervisors like the Dutch Healthcare organisation (NZA) and the Dutch Healthcare and Youth inspectorate (IGJ), and assist institutions and doctors in disciplinary cases. In addition, we provide guidance in procurement and other costing procedures, offer support to boards of directors and supervisory boards regarding governance processes, and direct research assignments for workplace incidents and dysfunctional employees. We also act as independent investigators in case of scandals or calamities in healthcare.
