Dobrusin Law shareholder Paul J. Palinski has been named to the board of trustees of McLaren Oakland, a 328-bed hospital providing primary and specialty healthcare services to the greater Pontiac and Oakland County communities.
“Social responsibility is a pillar of our law firm, as is our commitment to Pontiac,” said Mr. Palinski, who devotes his practice to intellectual property matters, including patent counseling and strategic patent prosecution with a focus on mechanical, electromechanical, and biomedical technologies. “I am honored to join the McLaren Oakland board and help support the hospital’s mission to be the recognized leader and preferred provider of health care services in the area.”
McLaren Oakland is part of McLaren Health Care. This integrated health network includes 13 hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, imaging centers, an employed primary care physician network, commercial and Medicaid HMOs covering more than 630,000 lives, home health and hospice providers, retail medical equipment showrooms, pharmacy services, and a wholly-owned medical malpractice insurance company. McLaren operates Michigan’s largest network of cancer centers and providers, anchored by the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute, one of only 49 National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive centers in the U.S.
