Former AccessHealth General Counsel Joins Seyfarth in Houston

Seyfarth Continues Expansion of Region’s Leading Health Care Practice

Seyfarth Shaw LLP announced today the arrival of Janice Suchyta to the Corporate department in Houston, who recently served as general counsel and chief strategy officer of AccessHealth, a federally qualified not-for-profit community health center.

In this role, Suchyta oversaw all legal and compliance matters for 16 locations, including four clinical sites, staffed by more than 200 employees serving 27,000 patients each year. Her responsibilities included regulatory oversight of federal and state funding sources, and oversight of AccessHealth’s data security and privacy; risk management; regulatory compliance, including Medicare/Medicaid reimbursement; contractual relationships with outside vendors, hospitals, ACOs, and insurance companies.

“Janice brings a unique and extensive in-house experience to Seyfarth as we expand what is one of the largest health care practices in the region,” said Mark Coffin, managing partner of Seyfarth’s Houston office. The Houston Business Journal recently ranked Seyfarth as the second-largest health care practice.

“As a former general counsel and chief strategy officer, Janice is a leading authority on corporate compliance and governance in the health care industry. She will be a tremendous asset as we guide clients through the demands of today’s complex health care landscape at both the federal and state levels,” said Steven Meier, chair of Seyfarth’s Corporate department.

Suchyta also serves as a frequent lecturer at University of Houston College of Nursing, speaking on health law policy trends and issues affecting the health care delivery model and how these trends will impact future nursing professionals.

Throughout her career, Suchyta has practiced privately and also served as director of operations for Bashen Corporation, the national human resources consulting firm based in Houston, with a focus on Equal Employment Opportunity (“EEO”) compliance services. She received her J.D. from the University of Detroit-Mercy School of Law and earned her B.A. from the University of Michigan.
