Welcome to the OR Manager Awards Center

We Are No Longer Accepting Nominations for the OR Manager Awards and the OR Manager of the Year.
Thank you for your submissions! Winners will be announced soon.




At the OR Manager Conference, we honor inspirational OR managers or directors every year with the OR Manager of the Year Award. Nominated by you, and hand selected by our Planning Committee and the OR Manager Advisory Board, the OR Manager of the Year is a champion of the perioperative suite.

This year OR Manager has added three new OR Manager Awards:

Given to a rising star in OR management, the inaugural Emerging Leader Award will be presented in Las Vegas at the 2016 OR Manager Conference. This award was developed to recognize newer managers of the OR (five years or less experience) as they pave the way to the future of patient care and OR management.

Managers of the ASC face unique challenges on a daily basis. It’s because of this OR Manager felt as though it was time to call out the tremendous work that our colleagues who manage Ambulatory Surgery Centers be given their own accolade. Join us as we honor the top leaders in ambulatory services at the 2016 OR Manager Conference in Las Vegas!

Managing the OR takes more than just perioperative savvy, it also requires a strong business acumen; requiring complex logistical decisions, scheduling demands, analytical thinking, and a focus on the bottom-line. The Best in OR Business Award will be presented at the OR Business Management Conference in New Orleans on February 1, 2017.

The OR Manager of the Year recipient receives a complimentary registration to the OR Manager Conference, along with complimentary airfare and hotel.

Other award winners will receive a complimentary Value Package to the OR Manager Conference at Caesars Palace on September 21.


Congratulations to Kathryn Adamson, Administrative Director, University of Utah Hospital, and 2015 OR Manager of the Year!
