Palmetto Hospital Trust (PHT) was founded in 1977 by South Carolina healthcare executives as a group workers’ compensation self-insurance pool. The Trust’s focus on worker safety, coupled with specialized risk management services, emphasis on prompt claims reporting, and superior claims administration, ensures that its members have the best possible solution for their workers’ compensation needs. Trust members include hospitals, continuing care retirement centers, organizations dealing with special needs individuals, and other healthcare organizations.
PHT is a leading provider of workers’ compensation coverage to the state’s healthcare industry. Workers’ compensation services are provided to PHT members under a contract with The Risk Authority Stanford, and through business alliances with other best practices companies.
