Editorial Advisory Board

OR Manager has two excellent editorial advisory boards representing hospital and ambulatory surgery center leadership. With their many years of experience, our board members help us identify the most pressing concerns of perioperative services leaders nationwide. They also provide regular feedback on our publication and events, helping us maintain the accuracy and timeliness of our content.

Many of our board members serve as advisors or presenters for the annual OR Manager Conference and OR Business Management Conference. Their participation ensures that we continue to deliver high-quality news, information, and education to our readers and conference attendees.

The support of all board members is critical to the success of OR Manager. We thank them for their expertise and guidance, and we look forward to the great work ahead as we continue to make our publication and events the primary resources for perioperative nurse leaders.
