Shand Morahan & Co., Inc. and AVRECO Launch New Risk Management Program for Midwest Hospitals
Date:10/18/2007

CHICAGO, Oct. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Shand Morahan & Co., Inc. and AVRECO are pleased to announce its partnership in an exciting new risk management program aimed at Midwest hospitals. The Heartland Healthcare Hospital Program (3HP) offers Midwest community hospitals with fewer than 150 beds comprehensive professional liability insurance that includes a unique, risk management component.

This cutting-edge, value-added component called Emmi(R) was created by Emmi Solutions LLC, and provides access to web-based interactive programs that help hospitals reduce claims and promote patient safety.

Shand provides the new Heartland Healthcare Hospital program affordable, claims-made insurance coverage with limits of $1 million/$3 million per location, and a $5,000 minimum deductible. Companion coverage is also available, including staff physicians, errors and omissions and long-term care. In addition, Shand Morahan will contribute 2% to each participating hospital to offset the cost of the Emmi(R) programs.

Commenting on 3HP, Sarah Dore, senior vice president healthcare at AVRECO said, "Risk management is about communication and behavior and Emmi(R) enhances that. There are a lot of risk management tools out there, but they don't get to the heart of the matter -- making patients a part of the team, a part of the process. Emmi(R) will help these community hospitals prepare their patients and make them a better-informed consumer."

"It was a great collaboration that focuses on insurance with a strong carrier, plus patient safety through an innovative approach," said Fran O'Connell, vice president medical at Shand Morahan & Co. Inc.
