SUMIT does much more than protect our insureds from losses – it uses risk management and patient safety grants to invest in our programs. These grant programs provide access to funds that may not be available through usual hospital operational budgets. From the Simulation Center to Emmi, from PARS to PEARL, these risk management and patient safety grant programs permanently provide opportunities for innovation and enhancement of patient safety efforts.
