CON Policy Services

Cat Scan

After many years of working to meet the requirements to initiate a fixed MRI service at Oaklawn Hospital without success, Oaklawn hired RWC Advocacy to work with them on a strategy to modify the CON standards to accommodate their needs and recently opened their fixed MRI service.

RWC Advocacy has a very strong lobbying practice, much of which is geared toward the Michigan State Legislature. Those strong roots in lobbying have helped develop just as strong of a presence with the Certificate of Need Commission and Michigan Department of Health and Human Services related to CON policy.

Melissa and her team have developed and fostered strong relationships with the 11 member Commission as well as key policymakers at the Department. Melissa is well respected by both and known for providing reliable honest information on very complex and controversial issues. All of this has resulted in great success on behalf of our clients when looking for policy changes, clarifications, and interpretations of CON policies.
