Todd Kelly has served major institutional health care clients in their most important transactional and regulatory matters, in Texas and nationally, for more than 20 years. Much of this work has involved innovative and first-in-market projects, including sophisticated hospital-physician joint ventures; single specialty (e.g., cardiac) and cross-platform (e.g., adult-pediatric) service line and market joint ventures; health care facility acquisition, divestiture, and change of ownership; provider affiliation and alignment, including accountable care, integrated delivery network, co-management, and shared savings models; freestanding outpatient, urgent, emergency, and community care strategies; medical practice acquisition and management and physician recruitment and employment; and telehealth implementation and expansion.

Todd has bought, sold, reorganized, or syndicated health care providers for clients in states including Texas, Louisiana, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, California, Missouri, Oregon, Montana, New York, and Virginia. He has worked on behalf of tax-exempt and for-profit providers (including in the dental, behavioral health, and veterinary subsectors), as well as for private equity and venture capital. His experience includes leading major company-wide transactions as well as detailed review of health care regulatory matters, including the federal Stark law, the federal anti-kickback statue and safe harbor regulations, Medicare and Medicaid enrollment, reimbursement and change of ownership, the corporate practice of medicine, and telemedicine and digital health regulation.
