Over 1,000 and counting for IAHCSMM 2017

Date Published: April 20, 2017

A few things might come to your mind when you think about Nashville, TN. The Grand Ole Opry. Live music. Or maybe the Country Music Hall of Fame. That’s what comes to our minds as well… however a very special event will take place in Nashville on May 7-10 that we hope will be etched in your minds when you think of the ‘Music City’ going forward and that is the 2017 Annual IAHCSMM Conference & Expo. Over 1,000 healthcare industry professionals from around the world will gather together to learn, share, and network all in the name of patient safety at the Gaylord Opryland Resort. The 4-day conference is jam-packed with education and a vendor exhibition, and we invite you to swing by and see us!

We are excited to feature CE educational sessions at our booth, both focused on instrument cleaning and reprocessing. Visit Key Surgical at booth number #1000 and we’ll have free product samples as well helpful tools we’ve specially designed for just for you, such as the Key Surgical Brush Scale.
