Cooperative of American Physicians, Inc. Elects New Members to Board of Directors
Date:6/24/2009

LOS ANGELES, June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Three new directors were elected to the board of the Cooperative of American Physicians, Inc. (CAP) at the organization's annual meeting June 18. Joining the 15-member board this month are Laurie Reynard, MD, a Santa Monica obstetrician/gynecologist; Bruce Weimer, MD, a Glendora neurologist; and Tammy Wu, MD, a Modesto plastic surgeon. Also new to the CAP board is Bela Kenessey, MD, a San Ramon family practitioner who joined the board earlier this year.

Drs. Reynard, Weimer, and Wu fill the vacancies left by the resignation of Newport Beach radiologist, Marvin Rawitch, MD who is now Director Emeritus, as well as the election of Los Angeles orthopedic surgeon Andrew Sew Hoy, MD, and Arcadia otolaryngologist Glenn Weissman, MD, to the Mutual Protection Trust (MPT) Board of Trustees. MPT is the core medical professional liability product of CAP.

The three incoming board members were all previous members of CAP's Fellows Program, wherein selected CAP members representing a variety of practice specialties, geographic settings, and experiences are invited to take part in different committee meetings each month. The goal of the Fellows Program is to prepare CAP members to assume expanded leadership roles and to ensure that CAP will always be a physician-driven organization, prepared to handle new and emerging issues in the medical liability arena.

"I am pleased to welcome this new group of exemplary physicians to our board of directors," said Chief Executive Officer James L. Weidner. "Each incoming member has already demonstrated his or her commitment to the success of our organization and they no doubt will enable CAP to continue to provide superior coverage and service to our members well into the future."

About the Cooperative of American Physicians, Inc.

The Cooperative of American Physicians, Inc. (CAP) was established in 1975 by a group of California physicians to manage the escalating cost of medical professional liability coverage. Two years later, CAP formed the Mutual Protection Trust (MPT) which today provides protection to more than 10,000 of the finest physicians practicing in California. The financial stability of MPT is so solid that A.M. Best Company has assigned it an A+ (Superior) Rating four years in a row. Based in Los Angeles, CAP also has offices in San Diego, Orange, Sacramento, and Palo Alto, California. For more information, visit www.cap-mpt.com.
