LEARNING MADE FUN OR Excellence, where leaders learn, grow and network together, convenes in New Orleans Oct. 3-5.

When we’re not busy producing your favorite surgical magazine, we here at Outpatient Surgery shift our attention from the page to the stage to create OR Excellence, what we hope will become your favorite surgical conference. What better way to promote our live event than with a printed piece?

The 2019 ORX Preview Issue highlights select sessions, speakers and vendors on tap for ORX, Oct. 3-5 at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans. Beginning on page 25, we feature select products and services that will be on display in the ORX Exhibit Hall.

Be they local, national or specialty-specific, we know you have many industry meetings from which to choose. We also know that you can only attend a couple per year, and that you might have to pick up a portion of the expenses, take time off from work and endure the inconvenience of airline travel. That being said, ORX is well worth your time and investment. But don’t take our word for it. Here’s what a few of the OR leaders from hospitals and surgery centers who attended last year’s ORX in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., had to say about their time with us:

  • “This was my first time attending this conference and I loved every minute of it. Very interesting topics, nice vendors and great food. I will definitely attend again,” says Linda Hichborn, MSN, RN, the manager of surgical services at Augusta at MaineGeneral Medical Center.
  • “Wow! What a great job — great speakers, great location, great breaks and food. I for once really enjoyed meeting with all the vendors as well. Thank you!” says Cindy Holden, RN, MBA, CASC, the administrator at the Fleming Island Surgery Center in Orange Park, Fla.
  • “The topics addressed issues and concerns that nursing leaders experience in their day-to-day work life. I can tell that the organizers of the conference put a lot of thought into the topics presented this year,” says Cyrene Del Rosario, RN, BSN, the nurse manager at Pomona Valley (Calif.) Hospital Medical Center.
  • “Fantastic conference overall! Love the personal touch and interaction that this conference provides,” says Deneas Cochran, RN, CNOR, administrator of Children’s West Surgery Center in Knoxville, Tenn. We hope you (and your staff) will join us in New Orleans. For more info or to register, visit or call (888) YOUR-ORX.
