Wendi Campbell Rogaliner, the firm founder, has spent her entire legal career representing health care providers. Wendi is licensed in both Texas and Oklahoma, and holds a certification in healthcare compliance (CHC) issued by the HCCA Compliance Certification Board.
Wendi spent her early years at a large Dallas law firm, Strasburger & Price, LLP, litigating medical malpractice claims in defense of local hospitals and physicians. While there, she gained valuable experience and developed a passion for providing legal services to health care providers. She tried several cases to verdict, and had the honor of being the first recipient of the Henry Strasburger Outstanding Litigation Associate award.
In 2001, Wendi was recruited to join the in-house legal team for Plano-based Triad Hospitals, Inc. During her tenure at Triad, Wendi had responsibility for the day-to-day legal operations of 14 hospitals and the company’s entire division of ambulatory surgery centers across the nation, and developed strong relationships with the local administrative teams in each market. Having served a large hospital company from an in-house position, Wendi gained valuable expertise regarding healthcare operations and the effect of the myriad of healthcare regulatory requirements on the day-to-day management of a hospital’s legal affairs.
With in-house experience, Wendi made the transition back to private practice in 2003 with her clients’ needs in mind. She made the decision early on that in-house experience made for excellent outside counsel, and when the time came to expand the firm, she remained steadfast in her insistence that all Rogaliner Law attorneys have in-house operational or legal healthcare experience.
Wendi’s special interest and expertise are in general operational and fraud and abuse issues, including Stark, Anti-kickback, HIPAA, EMTALA, peer review, general contract negotiations and beneficiary inducement prohibitions.
