Salary/Career Survey

OR leaders say the economic downturn has hit surgical services, according to results of the 19th annual OR Manager Salary/Career Survey. Nearly two-thirds (63%) of OR managers and directors have been asked to cut their annual operating budget in the past 6 months. In all, 79% are reconsidering or postponing capital expenditures, and 84% report new limitations on funding for attending educational events.
