Julieann Diamond-Carrow is Of Counsel in the Albany, New York, office of Jackson Lewis P.C. Ms. Diamond-Carrow has 20 years of experience in health law and provides legal counsel and business advice to  health care entities and providers, including health systems, hospitals, nursing homes, physician practices and participants of the New York State Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment Program. She has extensive experience handling a wide range of transactional and operational matters, including corporate governance and authority, regulatory and compliance issues, physician arrangements, risk management and medical staff issues, advance directives and end of life decision making, provider and associate relations, and patient care issues.

Clients appreciate Ms. Diamond-Carrow's vast understanding of the health care industry and its disruptive forces. Drawing on her experience as general counsel and health care executive, she brings a unique value add to her clients because she understands the interplay between strategy, operations and the law that drive access, delivery and quality.
