National Medical Billing Services, a national healthcare revenue cycle management company that specializes in servicing ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) and their affiliated surgeons, will sponsor World Series Champion coach Tony LaRussa‘s Keynote Address at Becker’s 19th Annual Ambulatory Surgery Centers Conference.
As the winningest manager in St. Louis Cardinals history, LaRussa led the team to three National League championships and two World Series titles. During his 33 seasons as a major league manager, including stints with the Chicago White Sox and Oakland Athletics, LaRussa led teams to six league championships and three World Series titles. He ranks third in all-time major league wins by a manager and was named Manager of the Year four times. LaRussa began his career in professional baseball as a player with the Kansas City Athletics in 1963. Over five seasons, he also played for the Atlanta Braves and Chicago Cubs. When his playing career ended, LaRussa earned a Juris Doctor degree from Florida State University College of Law. LaRussa announced his retirement from baseball shortly after the Cardinals won the 2011 championship.
“Tony LaRussa‘s long and successful career is truly inspiring,” says Nader Samii, Chief Executive Officer of National Medical. “His leadership reached beyond Busch Stadium throughout the entire city. I am especially proud to sponsor his address, as St. Louis is the headquarters for National Medical.”
LaRussa will speak to surgeons, physician leaders, administrators and ASC business and clinical leaders from across the U.S. about leadership and management on Thursday, October 25 at 4:45 p.m.
During the conference, October 25-27 at the Swissotel in Chicago, attendees will learn ways to manage challenging clinical, business and financial issues.
