Kenya S. Woodruff works with hospitals, physicians and other health care providers looking to improve the performance of their clinical operations and ensure regulatory compliance. She also helps those organizations merge and expand, whether through joint ventures, mergers or acquisitions.
Due to her prior experience as deputy general counsel at the Parkland Health & Hospital System, Kenya approaches operational issues from the client's perspective, taking into account both technical issues and practical concerns like payment. She structures arrangements that will be both clinically and financially beneficial to her client, while achieving regulatory compliance. Her insight into how systems work from both the patient and provider sides allows her to tailor her advice around what makes the most business sense.
Kenya can provide strategic advice to many different players in the health care world because she has worked with so many of them. Whether she is helping a physician group negotiate a deal with a hospital system, guiding a managed care company through an internal investigation or representing an accountable care organization in its formation, her experience gives her valuable perspective. In addition to her in-house hospital work, she also served as assistant general counsel for a national radiology services company.
