The success of community health centers and health center look-alikes is fundamental to the ongoing growth and prosperity of every region in Appalachia. This success is built on more than strong leadership, recruiting a dynamic board of directors, and hiring quality personnel. Federal and state requirements in administration, finance, compliance, and quality assurance must be maintained in order to sustain a successful community health center.
Appalachian Healthcare Legal Consulting was established by an accomplished healthcare and compliance attorney, Jenna Walker Misiti, to provide key compliance and legal services that enable community health centers to thrive.
Comprehensive services designed to help healthcare organizations navigate the ABCs of healthcare law and compliance.
Navigating through complicated governmental requirements and compliance regulations can be overwhelming. Mistakes or unintentional oversights may subject a quality institution to heavy fines or may seriously jeopardize its licensure. Community health centers are subject to a number of unique program requirements due to their Section 330 designation and funding. The services I offer enable health centers to focus on what they do best: providing quality healthcare to their patients.
I have nearly a decade of experience working with community health centers, the majority of which were spent serving as in-house counsel and compliance officer for one of the largest centers in our region. I currently work with a number of community health centers throughout the region, offering a wide variety of services.
My educational accomplishments include a bachelor’s degree from Marshall University, a law degree from Washington and Lee University School of Law, and a master’s degree in healthcare administration from St. Joseph’s University. I am nationally certified in healthcare compliance, and in 2018, I was published in “Compliance Today,” a national healthcare compliance magazine. In addition to my law practice, I enjoy serving as an adjunct professor at Marshall University, where I teach the legal aspects of healthcare administration, and spending time outdoors with my husband and two children.
