They made it a point to find ways to separate from their competition and make a unique experience for their guests.

For nearly a century surgical residents have been working 120 hours a week learning the skills necessary to succeed after training. What most people don’t know is what happens behind the closed doors of the operating room (OR). In Katherine Kellogg’s book, Challenging Operations, she lived the life of an intern for two years in three different hospitals. In previous years residents were expected to work as many hours as necessary until they were done with everything. They suffered through sleepless nights and 36 hour shifts.
