Kelly Hagan has practiced on the cutting edge of healthcare innovation for more than 25 years. Whether it is transitioning to value-based reimbursement, implementing new models of healthcare delivery or facilitating collaborations within competitive markets, Kelly helps his clients meet the antitrust, fraud and abuse, and privacy and data security challenges posed by “the next big thing” in healthcare, whatever it is.

Clients want efficient transactions, appropriate business and practice entities, and complex regulatory problems made simple. Understanding these business objectives has made Kelly a trusted advisor to boards of directors, C-suite management and compliance officers. With so much of health reform revolving around the sharing of health information, Kelly’s experience as co-chair of the firm’s Privacy and Data Security practice group adds an important dimension to clients’ strategic outlook.

When it comes to changes in the healthcare environment, Kelly has truly seen—and done—it all. Before joining Schwabe, he worked for Western Oregon Health Systems Agency (remember HSAs). He formed and advised IPAs serving the Oregon Health Plan in the 1990s, handled physician practice acquisitions by hospital systems in the years following, and then helped unwind those acquisitions in the post-managed care era. Using his broad experience and perspective, Kelly develops both long- and short-term strategies for client success.


“It doesn't matter what the subject is or how difficult the issue, Kelly Hagan is a reliable and valued partner in our legal discussions.”

“I know that Kelly Hagan will drop just about anything to take my call and respond to our needs. I have complete confidence in him as our counsel.”

--Joyce Newmyer, President, Adventist Health Services in Oregon / Chief Culture Officer at Adventist Health
