Protecting the Healthcare Industry

Growing regulatory scrutiny by pollution control agencies during a recessionary period of decreasing margins has increased the risk exposure of the U.S. healthcare industry. At the same time they are being asked to do more with less, hospitals, nursing homes, medical office buildings, and outpatient facilities are required to meet more stringent pollution control regulations, increasing the potential for significant pollution losses. Our HELP program helps you address the wide-ranging environmental exposures you face in healthcare.
