VIDEO: Elective surgeries Q&A

We’ve heard a lot about hospitals losing money because they aren’t doing elective surgeries. What are elective surgeries and why are they so important to hospitals? Lown President Dr. Vikas Saini and Senior Vice President Shannon Brownlee answer three questions about elective surgeries in this edition of “Lown Hospitals Q&A,” a recurring video series.

See our previous Hospitals Q&A about Hospital Bailouts here! Each week we will release a new Q&A video with Vikas and Shannon on a different hospitals-related topic. Next week’s topic will be Health Disparities.

If you have a question for Vikas and Shannon that you would like them to answer in a video, send it to
