Healthcare – Corporate Governance



Part of what makes a successful healthcare organization is its governing body's ability to implement procedures and policies that will ensure compliance with state and federal laws regarding governance issues, such as fiduciary duties, management agreements, and professional services agreements.

Venable counsels boards and companies in the healthcare industry, both nonprofit and for-profit, on all facets of corporate governance, taking into account the company’s specific circumstances and goals. We regularly provide advice on board duties and composition, board committees, charters, bylaws, governance policies, and internal restructurings. Venable regularly conducts corporate governance reviews for its hospital clients.
