Summary

Shifting to a language of shared purpose is a good place to start As hospitals and health systems aimed to maintain clinical operations, surgeons have been asked to do more with less. Surgeon and hospital alignment is critical to deliver high quality, safe, and consistent care – but pandemic-related challenges have made existing problems with alignment more apparent. We aim to explore the changing facets of the surgeon-hospital relationship and potential opportunities for realignment as the practice of surgery – and healthcare more broadly – adapts to and eventually emerges from the pandemic.
