Capital and governance in healthcare companies,

the example of liberal medicine

Le corporate has penetrated the health sector in general and liberal medicine in particular, to meet the challenges and issues that drive it and that also underpin its persistent and growing attractiveness. The restructuring and consolidation of the sector, through the grouping and concentration of liberal practitioners and technical platforms, is the main expression of this, which is based on two main tools : liberal practice companies (SEL) and financial participation companies for the liberal professions (SPFPL), subject to complex and imperfect regulations intended to preserve the independence of practicing professional partners. Twenty years of practice combined with the plasticity of the instruments corporate enabled the establishment and improvement adequate legal tools capable of reconciling the regulatory constraints with the diversity of the interests involved by building an appropriate capital and governance system, compatible with the particularities of the corporate practice of the health professions.
