Corporate sponsors are not only an important resource for funding for the mission of NOSORH, they are experts in rural health and often partners to the State Offices of Rural Health. This important work will be featured in a series of articles leading up to the NOSORH Annual Meeting.
Since its establishment in 1967, Hall Render has become one of the largest health care law firms in the country and continues to grow. Over 200 attorneys and advocacy specialists provide legal services on all matters of health care, including rural health issues, to over 1,500 clients in 45 states. They represent rural health care systems, critical access hospitals, rural health clinics, and federally qualified health centers, among others.
During their nearly 50-year span, issues facing the rural health care system have been a major focus of Hall Render’s work. They have been a strong supporter of NOSORH’s mission and work closely with NOSORH and State Offices of Rural Health, not just in a legislative liaison role, but by way of their expertise in health law, delivery system reform and advocacy. In particular, Brian Bauer, an attorney at Hall Render with over 20 years of experience in health law, has been an invaluable resource to NOSORH’s early efforts at examining integrated rural health care systems and providing a better understanding of MACRA when it was an emerging issue.
“Long before Hall Render was a NOSORH sponsor and legislative liaison, Mr. Bauer devoted hours of his time and expertise to NOSORH and its members. We truly appreciate the support,” said Teryl Eisinger, NOSORH Executive Director.
In addition to legal expertise on the rural health care system, Hall Render has strong relationships on Capitol Hill and in federal agencies. These relationships, combined with extensive knowledge of rural health, present an opportunity to enhance rural health policy and the overall health of rural Americans.
