Are you amazed at the high level of performance your staff and physicians reach day in and day out? Are they always aware of protecting themselves and your patients? Are they whizzes at controlling costs and maximizing revenues? Do they use the latest techniques to make sure patients recover from surgery comfortably and quickly? Do they go above and beyond to make sure patients leave with a smile? Are they always looking for ways to recycle and repurpose? Then it's time to nominate them for OR Excellence awards in one or more of the following categories:

  • Financial Management
  • Patient Safety
  • Employee Safety
  • Pain Control
  • Patient Satisfaction
  • SSI Prevention
  • Environmental Stewardship

We'll feature the 7 winners in our September 2016 issue and bring a representative from each award-winning facility to OR Excellence, where they'll receive free conference registration and hotel stay at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa. Best of all, they'll be recognized and celebrated in front of their peers during a special awards ceremony. We look forward to hearing from you. Good luck! OSM
