Health Care Facilities

  • Share this page

While the balance is changing, the majority of acute, chronic and rehabilitation health care in Canada is provided in institutional settings such as hospitals (public and private), long-term care homes, independent health facilities and private clinics and hospices. Working with the boards and management of these organizations, we advise health care facilities on the legal issues that face them on a day-to-day basis and on critical and strategic matters that affect them less often.

Over the past five years, Fasken Martineau has acted for hundreds of health care facilities across Canada.
