Hylant Group Establishes Medical Risk Practice
Medical Risk Practice
Hylant Group announces the addition of a specialty Medical Risk Practice designed to serve companies within the healthcare industry, including hospitals, physician practices, long-term care facilities and life sciences organizations.
Steve Bogart, vice president of Hylant's Medical Risk Practice, said the formation of the practice was in response to a growing need for specialized healthcare risk management solutions. Although Hylant Group has always offered risk management services to a variety of healthcare clients, the formalized practice group will officially launch June 18, 2007 to offer existing and prospective clients enhanced service offerings.
"There are a number of things to consider when it comes to the healthcare industry - high costs, frequent claims and personal and professional reputations," said Bogart. "With our extensive resources, experienced team and in-depth knowledge of the changing healthcare industry, we are positioned to address the specific needs of healthcare organizations to help mitigate risk and reduce insurance costs."
Hylant's Medical Risk Practice is staffed with some of the industry's most knowledgeable and dedicated professionals with decades of healthcare experience. The group members were selected based on their ability to tailor unique risk-management solutions to each client and to draw on all available resources to help meet client objectives.
Founded in 1935, the Hylant Group is a full-service business insurance brokerage with 11 offices in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and Tennessee. Headquartered in Toledo, Ohio, the Hales Report ranked Hylant as the sixth largest privately held brokerage in the United States in 2006.
With more than 635 professionals, the firm is positioned to serve a wide variety of clients locally, nationally and internationally. A member of the Worldwide Broker Network, Hylant offers complete risk management services, employee benefits consultation, loss control, 401(k) and financial services, healthcare management and insurance for businesses and individuals.
