Mia L. McKown is a seasoned health attorney in Holland & Knight's Tallahassee office and focuses her practice in the area of regulatory and administrative law.
Ms. McKown served as a general counsel for a state agency in Florida and has developed extensive knowledge and experience that enables her to successfully navigate her clients through the maze of state regulation in Florida.

Ms. McKown's clients include hospitals, hospices, continuing care retirement communities, assisted living facilities, skilled nursing facilities, healthcare clinics, substance abuse centers, medical device companies and physician groups.

In most instances, Ms. McKown is able to successfully resolve the review process by providing an informative and properly drawn response to the fact-finding inquiry. However, if an administrative complaint is filed against a healthcare provider, Ms. McKown routinely defends these matters before the administrative law judges at the Florida Division of Administrative Hearings and numerous Florida agencies, including, but not limited to, the Agency for Health Care Administration, the Department of Health (DOH), the Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR), the Office of Insurance Regulation, the Department of Financial Services and the Office of the Attorney General.
