COLUMBIA, SC– Health Care Risk Services South Carolina (HRSSC), Palmetto Hospital Trust (PHT), and Palmetto Healthcare Liability Insurance Program (PHLIP) have elected Conway Medical Center’s COO and CEO elect, Bret Barr, as a board member. “We look forward to Bret joining the boards,” says Brian J. Teusink, CPA, CCM, AIAF, president & CEO of HRSSC and president of PHT and PHLIP. “His knowledge and experience will be an asset to our governance team as we continue to serve the needs of South Carolina’s not-for-profit healthcare organizations.”
Leaving the boards of HRSSC, PHT, and PHLIP at the end of 2017, following lengthy service, is Philip A. Clayton, president & CEO of Conway Medical Center. “Phil has served our organizations loyally for more than two decades. His counsel will be missed and we truly appreciate his years of service on our boards,” said Mr. Teusink. Conway Medical Center recently announced Clayton’s retirement effective January 1, 2018 after 37 years with the organization.
Healthcare Risk Services South Carolina (HRSSC) was founded as PHT Services, Ltd. (PHTS) in 1993 and, until its recent acquisition by The Risk Authority Stanford, provided a variety of risk management services to South Carolina’s healthcare industry. Its service to the not-for-profit healthcare industry in South Carolina will be continued through the operations of The Risk Authority Stanford’s Global Service Center (TRA GSC).
Palmetto Hospital Trust (PHT) was founded in 1977 by South Carolina healthcare executives as a group workers’ compensation self-insurance pool, and is a leading provider of workers’ compensation coverage to the state’s healthcare industry.
Palmetto Healthcare Liability Insurance Program (PHLIP) was founded in 2001 in response to the growing need for a stable source for professional and general liability insurance for South Carolina hospitals and health systems. Operating as a Risk Purchasing Group pursuant to the Liability Risk Retention Act of 1986, PHLIP serves its members by providing access to group self-insurance options as an alternative to commercial insurance.
