Catherine Srithong Wicker

Senior Counsel

“I enjoy working with clients to develop effective and practical solutions that address the unique circumstances of each case. As an attorney who represents hospitals and medical staffs, my goal is to help clients navigate complex legal issues so that they can focus on delivering quality patient care.”

Catherine Srithong Wicker counsels health systems, hospitals, and medical staffs on various regulatory and litigation matters. She focuses a significant portion of her practice on peer review matters, internal investigations, fair hearing proceedings, and litigation relating to medical staff issues. She also advises clients on compliance issues, reporting obligations, self-governance, bylaws, credentialing and privileging, quality improvement activities, and physician disciplinary matters.

Catherine provides full-service support to medical staff leaders and administration and is regularly called upon to assist clients with both day-to-day and complex medical staff issues. She understands the statutes, regulations, and accreditation standards that affect medical staff operations but also appreciates the practical complexities and sensitivities involved when a provider’s conduct is being reviewed. 

Beyond her medical staff work, Catherine has experience representing skilled nursing facilities and other healthcare providers and suppliers in various matters, including managed care litigation, class actions, long-term care issues, and complex civil proceedings.
