Oregon Medical Association (OMA) and CNA select The Partners Group for depth of experience and expertise

The Partners Group. Ltd. (TPG), previously Kerr-Cruickshank, has been appointed the broker partner for the OMA/CNA Physician Protection Program. The program, which was created by Oregon physicians more than 48 years ago, provides healthcare practices with viable, stable professional liability insurance.  OMA and CNA have brought TPG into the program, expanding on existing marketing and servicing distribution channels.

“We are thrilled and honored to be granted the responsibility to be the exclusive broker partner and expand our ability to serve in our partnership with the OMA,” said Rod Cruickshank, President and CEO, The Partners Group.

Since 1995, TPG has been endorsed by the OMA to provide a broad suite of insurance products and financial services to OMA members. Currently working with more than 20,000 physicians and 300 clinics, TPG has become the leader in working with physicians, clinics and hospitals in the northwest.  The OMA, CNA and TPG will now work to collaborate and deliver an industry leading healthcare professional liability insurance product to physicians, clinics and hospitals.

“TPG’s knowledge of and expertise in the Western US marketplace and physician practices will enhance the services provided to the healthcare community, and we are proud to announce that TPG, OMA and CNA are engaging in this important endeavor together,” said Melanie Spiering, CNA Program Executive.

“The OMA’s member-focused partnerships with CNA and TPG bring together over 70 years of combined experience that strengthen our ability to support and advocate for Oregon physicians and physician assistants and their insurance needs,” said Bryan Boehringer, CEO, Oregon Medical Association. “This program provides more than insurance.  An integral element is the OMA/CNA risk training workshops delivered around the state, which provide our members with tools to improve patient satisfaction and reduce risk.  We are very pleased that these two key OMA partners are working together, and we look forward to working with them to address the professional needs of our members while continuing to enhance and expand the program.”
