You’ve decided to move your medical practice out of state – or perhaps just moving to a different location within your city or state. Whether you’ve moved previously or this is the first time you’ve moved as a healthcare provider, there are some things you must know before you even pick up the phone to call a real estate or relocation specialist. If from out of state your most important task is ensuring that you are qualified to practice medicine in the state you are moving. Upon receiving your new license, make a task checklist, like the one shown below.
Always consult with an attorney experienced in medical practice law pertaining to any state in which you intend to relocate – website information can and does change and may not always be accurately reflected online. You will also need legal advice when closing your existing practice along your state’s guidelines. This could involve ending a lease or selling your building, as well as complying with any legal procedures for terminating current patient and employee relationships. Follow these medical practice relocation checklist for smooth transition.
