complex regulations. In addition, the recent surge in healthcare mergers
and acquisitions and advances in medical technology have led to an
increased demand for construction and renovations of medical
facilities,” Kenneth

Products and services are provided by one or more insurance company
subsidiaries of W. R. Berkley Corporation. Not all products and services
are available in every jurisdiction, and the precise coverage afforded
by any insurer is subject to the actual terms and conditions of the
policies as issued. Certain coverages may be provided through surplus
lines insurance company subsidiaries of W. R. Berkley Corporation
through licensed surplus lines brokers. Surplus lines insurers do not
generally participate in state guaranty funds and insureds are therefore
not protected by such funds.
