Healthcare clients facing compliance questions – such as structuring transactions and physician relationships, internal investigations and the possible disclosure of violations of Stark and anti-kickback violations – rely on Patsy Powers to identify solutions with her typical calm demeanor and straightforward approach. As a past leader of Waller’s healthcare regulatory group, Patsy has advised hospital leaders, their counsel and compliance departments in all manner of complicated regulatory problems. Patsy rejoined Waller after serving as Senior Associate General Counsel at Vanderbilt University.
Having served as the interim compliance officer of an investor-owned hospital system, Patsy has first-hand knowledge of the challenges they face every day. This unique perspective enables her to advise clients from a targeted and experienced point of view. While healthcare law is broad in nature, Patsy has a focused appreciation of how it affects physicians, hospitals, and patients – and how difficult it is for smaller facilities and practices to stay compliant on all fronts.
Chambers USA and Best Lawyers have recognized Patsy for her healthcare experience. She is also AV-rated by Martindale-Hubbell.
Patsy has several interests in her free time including her family, tennis, Vanderbilt basketball and cooking.
