Chris Greene Featured in Buffalo Business First Article on NYS Law Requiring Health Care Providers to Notify Department of Health of Mergers and Acquisitions

Chris Greene, Health Care Practice Group leader, was featured in the Buffalo Business First article “New Law Requires Health Care Groups to Notify State About Mergers and Acquisitions.” The article explores the impact the new law, which goes into effect on August 1, 2023, will have on local health care providers as well as which types of providers are required to notify the state of a transaction and which types of transactions are necessary to report.

Chris provided advice regarding the timing of notifying the Department of Health, stating, “If you notify the health department of a transaction, you want to make sure you get out in front of that and notify your employees and your patients and their families, before they hear about it from someone else.”

Of particular importance is the financial penalty for noncompliance: $2,000 a day. Chris said, “There’s going to be some teeth in this statute. We as health care lawyers will go to our clients and advise them to at least get a notice drafted up and do their best effort to comply with the statute and get the notice in.”

Chris stressed the importance of health care employers keeping their employees in the loop regarding changes in law and ensuring compliance, especially given the fast-paced nature of the health care industry and the increased focus on transparency and accountability.
