Jared A. Goldman, a health care attorney and chief counsel for the receiver of the California prison medical system, has joined Best Best & Krieger LLP in Sacramento as a partner in the law firm’s business services practice.

Since 2006, Goldman has advised the receiver at all stages of the court-supervised turn-around of the California prison medical system, a billion-dollar health and hospital system placed under receivership by the federal court.

“I am pleased to be joining a law firm with such a great reputation statewide,” Goldman said. “I have known several attorneys at BB&K over the years, and knew it would be a great place to work.”

At BB&K, Goldman joins a health care law team that includes Gary Loveridge, former general counsel at Sutter Health whose practice encompasses all aspects of health care law, and Cathy Deubel Salenko, a health care and business attorney who also serves as general counsel to the County Medical Services Program Governing Board. The governing board oversees a program that provides health coverage for low-income, indigent adults in thirty-five, primarily rural California counties.

“Jared will be a great addition, especially given the firm’s increasing emphasis on health care law. His expertise will allow us to help our health care clients as well as counties and other public agency clients prepare for and implement the new federal health care law,” said Ed Quinn, BB&K’s office managing partner for Sacramento.

Prior to joining BB&K, Goldman served as in-house counsel to the Santa Clara Valley Health & Hospital System, a billion-dollar county healthcare provider and payor.

In addition to his receiver work, Goldman’s practice at BB&K will focus on providing general counsel services and specialized advice to health care providers on operations, compliance and government and commercial contracts, and government audits and investigations.

His clients include public, private and non-profit entities, including hospitals, clinics, psychiatric facilities, correctional facilities, pharmacies, public health agencies, emergency services agencies and various vendors supporting healthcare, social service and corrections agencies.

Goldman received his law degree in 2000 from the University of California, Hastings College of Law.
