Hello, I am a solo pediatrician and have owned my own practice (LLC) for 10 years. My wife is a pediatric nurse practitioner who works with me in the office. I was recently hospitalized and was curious to know if I could have my wife own part/most of the practice to continue it if anything happened to me. Can a non-MD (nurse or other employee) be an partner/owner of my medical LLC, and if so what percentage can she/he own? If not, what type of medical corporation will allow non-MD's to have ownership?
Thank you, Mike
