       Ascension Saint Thomas Hospital West (TNNAS) and Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas at Austin (TXAUS) have been chosen to pilot a new Specialty Based OR model that is designed to change the way we staff the OR. We believe there is an opportunity to create focused service line teams that would emulate a specialty hospital/ASC experience resulting in increased physician and OR team satisfaction, improved clinical outcomes and a decrease in serious safety events. We want all associates to feel confident that they are practicing at the top of their license or skill-set through membership in an interdisciplinary care team functioning with a standardized structure and caregiver skill mix. To accomplish this we will be implementing defined ways of working and behaviors that create a positive, just culture while increasing our use of enabling technology. OR team members will be guaranteed their hours in this new model, reducing uncertainty and increasing the availability of PTO for its intended use. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of creating the future of OR in Ascension.
