Pittsburgh, PA – September 19, 2023 – Post & Schell, P.C. is pleased to announce that Beth Anne Jackson has joined the firm as a Principal in its Health Care Practice Group in the firm’s Pittsburgh office.

“We are privileged to welcome an attorney of Beth Anne’s knowledge and experience to our Health Care group and Post & Schell,” said A. James Johnston. “Our health care provider clients are contending with a rare combination of legal, operational, and financial challenges that require counsel with a deep understanding of the health care industry.

For over 25 years, Ms. Jackson has focused on advising health care providers on the transactional, compliance, and operational aspects of health care law. She counsels providers on the development and implementation of contracts, transactions, policies, and procedures to comply with federal and state health care regulations, including the Stark Law, the Anti-Kickback Statute, peer review/HCQIA, PSQIA, HIPAA, EMTALA, corporate practice of medicine, bond covenants, and FDA and other regulations relating to the conduct of clinical trials. Her clients include hospitals and their medical staffs, ambulatory surgery centers, physician groups, other outpatient providers, and management services organizations.
Ms. Jackson’s decades practicing health care law, representing non-profits as well as private equity companies, closely held businesses, and other corporate entities, and her prior experience running a physician’s office, provide her with a deep understanding of the economic, legal, and operational aspects of the health care marketplace.
