MAG Mutual Insurance Company, the Southeast’s foremost medical professional liability insurer, has welcomed Mary G. Gregg, MD, FACS, MHA, to its executive team as chief medical officer.

In her role, Dr. Gregg will provide educational guidance and continue MAG Mutual’s open dialogue with policyholders, developing tailor-made patient-safety programs based on specific needs. She will also confer with and advise MAG Mutual leadership on regional and national medical trends, claims activities and how to best serve policyholders.

“I am excited to bring my experience to such a well-established and motivated organization,” says Dr. Gregg. “MAG Mutual’s commitment to promoting patient safety resonates deeply with me. Our healthcare system is currently in a reactionary state. At MAG Mutual, we are focused on being proactive, on solving problems before they arise and on ensuring that our policyholders have the information they need to continue to provide extraordinary patient care.”

“Dr. Gregg is an incredible addition and asset to our organization,” says Dr. Joe Wilson, chairman of the board and CEO of MAG Mutual. “With the pace of change in our industry, it was critical to bring someone on board who is deeply familiar with and engrained in the key issues facing physicians. Dr. Gregg is helping us create something meaningful—something that we believe confirms our commitment to educating and supporting our policyholders, and something that will have a tangible impact on patient care.”

Dr. Gregg brings more than 25 years of experience in cardiac surgery, patient safety and hospital administration. She most recently served as medical director of quality and patient safety and the vice president of medical affairs with Swedish Health Services—one of the Northwest’s largest non-profit health systems, located in Seattle. Dr. Gregg also held the position of medical director for Clinical Outcomes Assessment and Performance (COAP) at the Foundation for Healthcare Quality (FHCQ), as well as serving as the medical director of clinical quality at Swedish Heart and Vascular Institute.

Dr. Gregg earned her medical degree at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and was formerly the chief resident in general surgery at Yale, New Haven Hospital in Connecticut.
