But if there's a defin- ing characteristic to this year's OR Excellence Award winners, it's that they've not only accepted the challenges they face, they've embraced them. And they've enthusiastically put in the effort needed to reach even higher levels. Is there such a thing as going the extra mile when you're concerned about keeping staff and patients safe, about managing pain, about preventing infec- tions and protecting the environment, about keeping patients satisfied, and about carefully managing finances? Our winners don't think so. We honor them because they make all the important "extras" part of their standard operating procedures. And we know they're far from alone in doing so. We know that you, our readers, are dedicated to excellence and that you're striving every day to improve. So we salute you, as well. And we hope you'll let us know how you do what you do when the time comes to choose next year's OR Excellence Award winners. — Outpatient Surgery Editors Awards Issue OR Excellence Awards 2016 Going above and beyond is standard operating procedure for this year's 7 winners.
