SOUTH BEND, IN—Barnes & Thornburg has announced the addition of Jason Schultz as a partner in the firm’s Healthcare Department. Schultz, who brings more than 15 years of in-house and private practice experience, will be based out of the firm’s South Bend office.

Schultz comes to Barnes & Thornburg after almost 12 years of experience with a multi-hospital health system, where he served as general counsel for nine years before being selected for the role of vice president of strategy and business development. Under his tenure, he provided legal and compliance-related advice to three hospital campuses, 26 physician office locations, urgent care, three long-term care facilities, a home health entity, and ownership interests in multiple health care organizations.

Schultz focuses his practice on advising local, regional, and national healthcare clients on increasingly complex regulations and statutes. He also counsels healthcare entities on strategic affiliations and transactions, government investigations, physician employment, managed care contracting, and value-based care. He has a particular passion for assisting providers with adopting new emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, telehealth, wearable devices and remote patient monitoring.

Schultz has experience counseling clients on transactions, hospital joint ventures, Anti-Kickback and Stark Law violations, Accountable Care Organizations, medical staff matters, provider-based determinations, audits, and HIPAA. Additionally, he led government relations for the system, routinely working with federal and state officials on lobbying and advocacy initiatives.

Schultz earned his J.D. from Washington University School of Law, and his B.S., with highest honors, from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
