EPIC Insurance Brokers & Consultants (Edgewood Partners Insurance Center or EPIC), a retail property and casualty insurance brokerage and employee benefits consultant, announced today the expansion and reorganization of its healthcare practice.
The new healthcare practice will be rebranded and serve clients as Edgewood Healthcare Advisors. The practice combines the resources and specialists gained through EPIC’s acquisition of the U.S operations of Integro Insurance Brokers, which included its healthcare, reinsurance and analytics practices, as well as EPIC’s existing healthcare resources.
Edgewood Healthcare Advisors is led by Managing Principal Susan Tewhill and focuses on insurance and risk service needs of operations spanning the entire healthcare spectrum.
“I’m very excited to lead the Edgewood Healthcare Advisors team,” Tewhill said. “We have an experienced and growing group of professionals with a passion for developing solutions for clients in the healthcare industry. The industry is diverse and we will serve it by setting our considerable experience, skill and insight to crafting solutions for hospitals, health systems, physician groups, senior living, managed care organizations and medical device companies.”
Marc Kunney, President, Risk Management for EPIC Insurance Brokers & Consultants, sees an opportunity for the new practice to help clients more effectively together than its separate parts had previously. “Combining resources and streamlining operations around our clients enables us to move faster while continuing to deliver innovative solutions and superior service to them,” Kunney noted.
Pete Garvey, CEO of EPIC Insurance Brokers & Consultants, along with Tewhill, Kunney and other members of the healthcare practice, will be attending the upcoming ASHRM annual conference in Baltimore, MD October 13 – 16. They are looking forward to connecting with risk professionals there about Edgewood Healthcare Advisors and the solutions it provides.
