1989 was an important year of firsts that make a difference, both socially and in the workplace. Some of these firsts include:
First release of the 486 Series microprocessor by IntelFirst release of Nintendo Game BoyFirst of 24 satellites of the Global Positioning System placed into orbitFirst episodes of the Simpsons shownFirst release of Microsoft Office
Another first occurred in 1989 that didn’t receive as much notice as those above, but has made a difference in the lives of thousands of physicians and physician practices in the years since. Professional Risk Associates was founded. Read on to learn more about our accomplishments in the last 30 years and our latest client benefits. And be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to stay informed on Professional Risk and the healthcare community.
In 1989 John Glander, a businessman and entrepreneur in Virginia, decided to form a company where culture, knowledge, and the expertise of its employees would result in the highest level of trust and service to its clients. Thus, Professional Risk Associates (PRA) was born.
Since then, the mission of PRA has been to make a difference in the lives of physicians by reducing their anxiety level regarding risk identification and mitigation in their practice. By employing those with an in-depth understanding of the medical professional liability marketplace and ensuring they have the same commitment to making a difference, a dynamic company has evolved now representing over 4,000 MD’s in 23 states and the District of Columbia, with plans to continue growing.
Whether it’s the creation of PRA as an ESOP company (Employee Stock Ownership Program), partnering with five premiere medical professional liability carriers in the U.S., or the development of a unique risk analytics program exclusive to PRA clients; our company continues to have the desired effect of making a difference in both in the lives of our employees and our physician clients.
