Making your hospital a destination choice for surgeons

“Splitters” are a challenge for hospital surgery departments, as more and more options outside the hospital facility are available to surgeons. Often, these options, such as ambulatory surgery centers, are more attractive with faster OR turnover times and fewer requirements on surgeons in preoperative and postoperative care. Losing these cases is a blow to hospital operations and finance. This episode provides several approaches that can encourage these surgeons to make your hospital a destination of choice.
