Fletcher Brown, a partner in the Austin office of Waller Lansden Dortch & Davis, LLP will be a featured speaker on health law at the first-ever National Association of Freestanding Emergency Centers (NAFEC) Conference in Dallas on June 17.
The conference, which is co-hosted by the Austin-based Texas Association of Freestanding Emergency Centers (TAFEC) and the Texas College of Emergency Physicians (TCEP), will highlight the latest news and developments in the world of freestanding emergency centers (FEC), emergency room physicians, investors and owners of healthcare facilities.
Brown will speak at 3:30 p.m. on June 17 at the Omni Dallas Park West Hotel. Their topic will be “From CONs to Struggling Rural Hospitals – What it all means for the free-standing emergency center community.”
More specifically, Brown will address “the many pressures rural hospitals face and what that may mean for freestanding emergency centers.”
The FEC industry was created in Texas in 2009, and has since flourished as a convenient means for consumers to access emergency care. Many other states have observed the growth of the FEC industry, while others are considering legislation.
“The healthcare industry is changing on a daily basis, especially with regard to FECs,” said Brown. “We have an obligation to our clients to understand the impact they will have from a strategic and legal perspective.”
Brown brings substantial experience to bare on the issue.
Brown has consistently been recognized by Chambers USA as a leader in Texas health law. In addition to that honor, he is widely respected for his precedent-setting work with the Texas Medicaid 1115 Waiver, which helped more than 45 healthcare providers receive additional funding to expand risk-based managed care statewide.
