Charles Bond has been a trusted attorney and business advisor since 1989 when a colleague and I formed a partnership to contract with a local hospital to provide emergency physician services. Whether it concerned organizational structure, contract negotiation strategy, or issues related to personnel, Mr. Bond’s knowledge base was extensive, his priorities clear, and his advise worthy.

He has given considerable thought to complex issues relevant to the practice of medicine in today’s often confusing and dispiriting environment. His latest efforts to bring patients and physicians together around shared goals and incentives is an exciting alternative to hospital dominated foundations and more corporatized medical practices.

Mr. Bond brings to this venture a wealth of experience with physicians, hospitals and government, and a commitment to a future where medical care will be cost effective but patient and community centered, and not designed to enrich insurance, pharmaceutical and hospital executives.
