Description

SPINE CENTERS
OF EXCELLENCE
Dear Healthcare Executive:
Spine surgery rates worldwide have increased dramatically in the past twenty years, more specifically, with Spine and musculoskeletal
disorders accounting for nearly 70 million physician office visits in the US each year, and estimated 130 million outpatient, hospital and
emergency room visits. U.S. Census data indicates that %80 of all adults experience back pain, which is a chronic problem and represents the
second leading cause of hospital admissions in US.
Due to the recent advances in technology, declining revenues, and increasing number of baby-boomers, most hospitals, physicians and
facilities are starting to see the benefits of defining themselves by centers of excellence and are willing to make the necessary investments in
implementing and updating spine centers of excellence. The bottom-line is to improve market share and enhance revenue while addressing a
critical health need in their communities.
Join us September 10-12, 2008 in Chicago in a gathering of administrative and medical leaders all striving to advance their spine/
neuroscience/ orthopedic service lines. With a focus on how hospitals should incorporate spine into their business model and be more
profitable, the conference offers the ideal forum to learn from experienced leaders, consult with experts, initiate partnerships and discuss
solutions with decision makers.
