XL Group’s Bermuda insurance operations have formed a new partnership with The Sullivan Group (TSG), a provider of clinical risk and loss prevention services to hospitals, physicians and nurses throughout the US.
Through the new partnership, XL Insurance (Bermuda) seeks to align its portfolio of healthcare clients and prospective clients with TSG’s mission of improving patient safety by reducing medical errors and lowering the frequency of malpractice claims.
Wesly Guiteau, senior vice president and healthcare practice leader at XLIB, said: “We are pleased to have reached this agreement with TSG to provide our clients with first-class complementary risk management and online education services.
“For more than 27 years, XLIB has provided leading insurance solutions to this industry. This new partnership demonstrates XLIB’s continuing commitment to our clients and it is part of a multi-prong effort to realign our platform with our clients’ growing need for insurance products, including risk management support.”
Carla Greaves, senior vice president and chief excess casualty underwriter at XLIB, agrees that the partnership between XLIB and TSG reinforces XL Group’s commitment to delivery of sophisticated risk solutions to this important industry sector.
She said: “As the US healthcare industry transitions to meet requirements of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, XLIB has embraced the opportunity to align with a prominent healthcare risk services consultant, such as TSG, to assist clients in improving the quality of healthcare delivery and therefore achieving better results in patient care.”
TSG president and CEO Dan Sullivan added: “We look forward to our new partnership with XLIB as we believe their organization has made a unique commitment to the healthcare industry and is well positioned to promote our mission of improving patient safety through implementation of tools proven to reduce medical errors and improve quality of care.”
