Health care providers turn to Jack Gleason to spearhead their corporate transactions because he is considered a “dealmaker,” not a “deal breaker.” Jack understands the health care industry and appreciates the nuances of various constituencies. His clients include hospitals, long-term care facilities and organizations, medical groups, and investors.
A former health care executive, a seasoned counselor, and an experienced negotiator, Jack represents clients in health care mergers, acquisitions, affiliations, and divestitures. In these complex transactions, he develops the business strategy, negotiates the deal terms, designs legal structures to implement them, and closes the deals.
Jack also helps health care organizations with strategic planning. He consults with board and executive management teams on organizational design, corporate structure, roles, responsibilities, and liabilities. He also educates and trains management and board members.
Prior to joining Epstein Becker Green, Jack was the national managing partner of a Big 4 accounting firm’s health care consulting practice. Before becoming a lawyer, he worked as a hospital administrator and a pharmacist.
Jack is a frequent speaker at strategic planning and executive management seminars. His previous topics have included “Strategies for Success,” “Consumerism in Health Care,” “How to Use a Management Consultant,” and “I.D.S. Development — Lessons Learned.”
Additionally, Jack is a board member of a number of health care organizations, including Providence Rest Nursing Home in New York City and Archcare, the Continuing Care Community of the Archdiocese of New York.
