Healthcare


We serve multi-facility healthcare systems, safety-net hospitals, national allied health service companies, small physician groups and everything in between. We are sensitive to the licensure and credentialing process for licensed professionals, the training and recruitment cycle and the graduate medical education (GME) year. We have assisted healthcare sector clients with employment-based immigration benefits, including cap-exempt H-1Bs, cap-subject H-1Bs, TNs, J waivers and green cards for physicians, nurses, physical therapists and other allied healthcare professionals.

In addition to generally available employment-based green card paths, there are oft-overlooked immigration options specific to the healthcare industry. Our firm is fully conversant with these particular options, which permits us to deliver top-notch results to our health care clients. For instance, a path to the green card called “Schedule A”  for appropriate allied healthcare professional positions can save time and money as compared with a standard labor-certification-based or “PERM” path to lawful permanent residence. In another example, physicians carrying out full-time clinical care in qualifying underserved populations can save money, time and employer burdens through pursuing a green card through a Physician National Interest Waiver case. Our firm is fully-versed in all of the industry-specific options, to help ensure you can make the best decision possible.

“The green card process can be very intimidating but  Kristen was always very accessible for any questions or concerns and would go the extra mile to help us through any difficulties. Very knowledgeable and diligent, she was up to date on immigration laws. Though it has been several years since we got our green cards, she has become like family and we are still in touch.”

Dr. Sunita Singh, M.D.
