Underberg & Kessler Advises St. John’s on URMC Collaboration

June 11, 2024

The Health Care and Corporate & Business Law practice teams at Underberg & Kessler LLP were proud to have advised St. John’s in its recently announced innovative strategic collaboration with the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC). The collaboration leverages the unique strengths and resources of both organizations to address key challenges facing our community, including hospitals operating above licensed bed capacity because of a shortage of available long-term care beds and community services gaps impacting timely health care delivery. By sharing expertise, networks, and resources, the two institutions hope to create lasting impact and drive meaningful change in the lives of individuals and families throughout Rochester and the Finger Lakes region.

St. John’s is a leading provider of a full continuum of services for older adults. Since 1998, Underberg & Kessler has assisted St. John’s with a full range of legal services to help them become a leader in senior living and care options in the Greater Rochester area.

“We are thrilled to have played a role in this collaboration between two highly respected organizations with similar cultures and values,” said David M. Tang, chair of Underberg & Kessler’s Health Care practice. “This initiative is a great example of how thinking outside the box and working together can lead to a win-win situation.” The Underberg & Kessler team for the representation included David M. Tang, Helen A. Zamboni, Patrick L. Cusato, Joshua B. Beisker, Colin D. Ramsey, and Andrew M. Washburn.
