Frequently Asked Questions

Why do Hospitals and Medical Centers need insurance?

This industry includes general practice hospitals and specialized healthcare centers such as psychiatric and substance abuse centers, HMO medical centers, kidney dialysis centers, children’s hospitals, orthopedic hospitals, physical rehabilitation centers and various outpatient service centers that specialize in X-ray diagnostics, clinical laboratory services, and social work. These establishments specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, illnesses, and other physical and mental ailments.

Hospitals and medical centers need insurance because they deal with a lot of patients on a day-to-day basis. This means that any mistakes done by your nurses or doctors could heavily affect your business, particularly if it is a malpractice lawsuit. Most hospitals end up bankrupt after a malpractice lawsuit - regardless if they win or lose. Your insurance will cover these risks and make sure that when it happens, your business and personal assets are protected.

What risks do Hospitals and Medical Centers face?

A common risk that hospitals and medical centers face is when your nurse or doctor provided a medicine or professional advice that caused the patient more harm. This could be a huge malpractice lawsuit.

  • The MRI machine suddenly malfunctions and you end up forcing MRI scans on a halt.
