When a South Florida hospital summarily suspended a physician for impairment, Lash & Goldberg LLP guided the hospital through its investigation and proceedings before a peer review committee, an administrative appeal and final review and decision by the hospital’s governing board.

The suspended physician subsequently filed a complaint in Florida state court against the hospital and various individuals from the hospital administration and medical staff.  After protracted and contentious litigation, the physician’s claims against the hospital and the individuals were dismissed with prejudice.
