Beazley adds to healthcare liability team with Atlanta hire
Specialist insurer Beazley has appointed Hannah Smith as a miscellaneous medical underwriter within its US healthcare team.
Based in Atlanta, Ms Smith will underwrite a range of miscellaneous medical professional liability (MPL) risks, from blood and tissue banks through to laboratories and medical clinics, on both a primary and an excess basis. She will also underwrite Beazley’s growing virtual care book, which provides cover for technology-enabled healthcare and lifestyle management services.
Ms Smith joins Beazley after six-and-a-half years at Hiscox USA, most recently serving as regional lead, managing a team of professional liability (PL) underwriters, and as PL senior underwriter. She underwrote PL risks including A&E and MPL while specializing in Allied healthcare.
She will report to Jennifer Schoenthal, healthcare underwriter, who commented: “Healthcare providers are operating in an often challenging legal landscape with new exposures particularly driven by the digitalization of services. As we expand our team to meet the growing demand for specialist underwriting and claims expertise, I am delighted that Hannah has joined us.”
