Since 2002, CHART has kept hospitals, practitioners, and patients safe and sound.

CHART is a comprehensive risk services provider.

CHART combines an AHRQ-certified Patient Safety Organization with a 100% member-owned medical malpractice insurance company.

Our community hospital members, found throughout Pennsylvania, West Virginia and New York, are hand-selected based upon their location, size, and individual commitments to patient safety. Once selected to join our community, our members gain access to extensive Patient Safety and Education services to improve outcomes, enhance defensibility and better engage with patients. Since 2002 we have saved our members a documented $170,000,000 in premium cost and our business plan has earned us the prestigious A- (Excellent) rating for financial strength from A.M. Best.

What is a Risk Retention Group?

All of CHART’s hospital members are owners of the company and all share in profits.

CHART’s Board of Directors is comprised of community hospital executives and physicians who govern the organization in the best interest of our members.

CHART is the third largest medical malpractice risk retention group in the U.S. We are protected by reinsurance and members cannot be assessed for losses.

Members gain equity in CHART and collect cash dividends annually. Meanwhile, CHART invests far more in patient safety than other insurers of all types.

$50

Million in cash dividends has been paid to member hospitals.
