ABSTRACT
Surgery managers are looking for people to assume responsibility for evaluating and managing costs. A nonclinical background can be helpful. • The person must enjoy working with details and researching product use as well as alternatives. • The right person is a good communicator and can work with all staff members and physicians. • An MBA ensures a broad business and financial training that can help the person identify potential cost-saving opportunities. • The cost control manager must be visible and willing to learn about the clinical use of supplies and equipment as part of the evaluation process.
