Outpatient Surgery Joins AORN

Two of surgery's most respected voices are joining forces to create a powerhouse with unmatched reach and influence. The Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN) has acquired Outpatient Surgery Magazine and the OR Excellence Conference from Herrin Publishing Partners.

AORN says the acquisition, effective March 31, reinforces the world's largest professional association for perioperative nurses commitment to ambulatory surgery safe practice and strengthens the lines of communication to and from surgical team members in all settings.

"AORN views this acquisition as both a growth opportunity for the association and a significant complement to the news and resources that our Ambulatory Surgery Division provides our members," says AORN's Executive Director/CEO Linda Groah, MSN, RN, CNOR, NEA-BC FAAN. "We expect this move will make a positive difference to all surgical team members in every specialty and OR setting."

Outpatient Surgery will continue its work from its home office in Pennsylvania.

In the near future, subscriptions to Outpatient Surgery's digital edition will be complimentary for AORN's 42,000 members, including 10,000 who work in ambulatory surgery centers. Members may receive the print edition for a reduced annual subscription fee and can subscribe for free to Outpatient Surgery's daily news service to stay informed about current events in the ambulatory surgery setting.

"We were humbled and thrilled to be invited to join one of the world's most successful, dynamic, entrepreneurial professional associations," says Stan Herrin, founder and president of Herrin Publishing Partners. "With the power of AORN's resources, reputation and vision behind us, we feel we are in a great position to continue serving the surgical community through the rest of this century and beyond."
