Cooperative General Hospitals (SAZ)
The meeting is organized by SAZ. This is a partnership of regional hospitals that are highly intertwined with and anchored in the region in which they are located. These hospitals see their connection with residents, knowledge of local practices and connection with other regional healthcare providers, as a prerequisite for good care.
