Fox Rothschild Launches Pro Bono Initiative for Health Care Personnel Amidst COVID-19 PandemicApril 7, 2020 – Press Releases
With COVID-19 spreading rapidly and perniciously throughout the United States, hospitals and health care providers are confronting not only critical equipment shortages but also a dearth of essential personnel to attend to acutely ill patients. Fox Rothschild LLP is providing pro bono legal services for volunteer doctors, nurses, physician assistants and other health care professionals who are responding to the nationwide "call to arms," as well as retired professionals ready to put their years of experience into service once again.
“Throughout this critical time it is imperative that we all do what we can to help our front-line health care providers,” said Michael Bassett, who is leading the initiative for Fox. “We are happy to be able to provide these essential legal services to those who are fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Fox attorneys nationwide are offering pro bono representation to help guide and advise these individuals in satisfying license reinstatement procedures, understanding the parameters and protections applicable to various volunteer services, and recognizing state-based regulatory issues, as many professionals are traveling to states most in need of their services, and more.
The firm is also offering low-cost services for contract review and related needs, if required by the hospital or health care provider.
