We put our Fab Five speakers on the cover of this special OR Excellence Conference Preview. We only wish we had room for all 21. But we highlighted Kenneth P. Rothfield, MD, MBA, Sheri Fink, PhD, MD, Ashish Sinha, MD, PhD, MBA, Marty Makary, MD, MPH, and Ann Geier, MS, RN, CNOR, CASC, because they're terrific speakers who'll deliver riveting talks on such topics as patient safety, medical ethics, substance abuse and price transparency.

But we have so much more in store for you at this year's OR Excellence. You'll be moved to tears when you hear how Ridley Barron's crusade for patient safety sprung from unthinkable personal tragedy (see page 8). And to give you more bang for your educational buck, we've added 3 morning workshops before the general sessions start on Wednesday, including an A-to-Z workshop on adding an outpatient total joint service line.

Whether you're producing a magazine or an educational conference, content is king. We've highlighted all of our speakers and sessions for you in this 48-page preview so you can see the tremendous value in attending ORX.

We hope you'll join us at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa in Bonita Springs, Fla., Oct. 12-14 for a 3-day retreat you won't soon forget. You'll return to your facility recharged and refreshed after the most intimate and most important networking event you'll attend this year.

At ORX, the learning doesn't stop once you leave the lecture hall. After a full day of sessions, you'll have the opportunity to network with fellow surgical leaders from across the country while also checking out the industry's hottest technologies in our exhibit hall. OSM
