Day Pitney is pleased to announce that Healthcare practice chair Susan Huntington has been named to the Hartford Business Journal's 2023 Power 25 Health Care list.
This is the fourth annual Power 25 Health Care list, which identifies leaders who have had a significant impact on the industry and public health, according to the publication.
"Susan is a thoughtful and charismatic leader at our firm, and we are so proud to see her recognized for the powerhouse that she is," said Gregory A. Hayes, Day Pitney Managing Partner. "She is a dedicated practitioner of law who acts as a mentor to our next generation of attorneys and is devoted to her clients, her team, and the firm."
Huntington, a partner and vice chair of Day Pitney's Corporate and Business Law department, assists all types of health care providers with the spectrum of business and regulatory needs, with particular experience in forming accountable care organizations and clinical integration networks. In addition to private law firm practice, she has 20-plus years of in-house experience for a hospital, an insurance company, a large medical practice, and an entrepreneurial healthcare company. Additionally, Huntington has developed a national reputation for her work at the heart of the emerging trend for convergence between healthcare providers that become insurers and health plans that own medical groups or directly deliver health care services. During her 30+ year legal career, she has focused on health law and has extensive clinical, business management, insurance, risk management, and legal experience. As a certified physician assistant, Huntington also has a first-hand perspective on the challenges and opportunities faced by health care providers. She helps hospitals and physicians take advantage of the new options for clinical integration or joint ventures to improve the quality and delivery of health care.
"I've spent my entire career trying to improve access to and quality of the health care delivery system in the U.S, both as a physician's assistant and as a practicing attorney, and I'm honored to be included in this list of health care practitioners that understand this is not just a job, but a calling," said Huntington.
At Day Pitney, Huntington was a key driver in establishing and drafting content for the firm's COVID-19 Resource Center and continues to be the resource on COVID-related issues for clients. She is a frequent author and editor of the Healthcare quarterly newsletter called C.H.A.T (Cybersecurity, Healthcare and Technology). She is active in many firm DEI activities, including serving as a member of the DP Alliance Leadership, associate mentoring, and recruitment and retention.
Huntington has been an active member of the American Health Lawyer Association, serving as the vice chair of the Association's Enterprise Risk Management Task Force for several years. She earned her B.S., with Honors, from the University of Wisconsin in its first class of physician assistants and her J.D., cum laude, from Georgetown University Law Center. She is admitted to practice law in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Washington, D.C.
