Physicians’ Reciprocal Insurers (PRI), a malpractice writer in New York State, said that North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System has renewed its contract with the company for professional and general liability insurance through 2012. PRI has been North Shore-LIJ’s insurance provider since 2004.

According to PRI, North Shore-LIJ is the region’s healthcare provider, consisting of 14 hospitals, centers of progressive care, long-term care facilities and home health agencies. Its facilities are staffed by around 7,500 physicians, and 9,500 nurses and other healthcare professionals.

In addition to acting as its primary professional liability insurance carrier, PRI will continue to support North Shore-LIJ’s patient safety and risk management education efforts. The company looks forward to partnering on future initiatives which makes it easy for North Shore-LIJ to embrace progressive concepts and limit its overall liability.

Anthony Bonomo, CEO of PRI, said: “We are excited to continue our relationship with North Shore-LIJ, which is one of the premier healthcare institutions in the state. At PRI, we pride ourselves on being good partners to our insureds and we are glad that we have been able to collaborate with North Shore-LIJ in developing programs that meet their evolving needs.”
