PRISM President Ettie Schoor Named 2020 “Power Broker” by Risk & Insurance

Cedarhurst, NY  (Viz Release) – – Prism Insurance Group Founder, President and CEO Ettie Schoor has been named a 2020 Power Broker by Risk & Insurance, the leading insurance industry media.  Schoor was cited by the magazine for her record of providing exceptional customer service to her firm’s workers’ compensation clients.

The awards cite commercial insurance brokers for their creativity in solving risk-related problems, their demonstrated industry knowledge and their high level of client service.

“I am honored to be named a Power Broker again this year and I am especially appreciative to our clients who spoke with Risk & Insurance to endorse our work and our customer service record,” Ms. Schoor said. Previously, Schoor was also named a Power Broker in 2016 and 2015.

Prism Insurance Group, now in its 25th year, provides the full breadth of insurance services including claims management and risk management.

Its historic clients are health care employers – nursing homes/long term care facilities, hospitals, and other related healthcare employers. Prism is the acknowledge leader in claims management and safety and loss control for nursing homes.

Risk & Insurance outlined the program that Prism developed for Villa Healthcare, which operates more than 30 skilled nursing facilities in the Midwest.  PRISM worked to implement an ambitious collection of safety programs for Villa, from rewriting the organization’s footwear policy to launching a safety observation program to developing extensive marketing and training materials to keep program goals top of mind for employees.

The results were dramatic – workers compensation claims dropped significantly for Villa.

“They’re really advocates for their clients in such a total way,” said Adam Ostreicher, an attorney and representative for client Highland Care Center. “They’re just amazing. They’re right out in front. They epitomize [the adage that] an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Prism Insurance Group

Founder Ettie Schoor, from day one, set PRISM’s sights on knowing every detail of healthcare risk, finding the right partners to protect those risks and finally striving every day to exceed client’s expectations.
