This month was marked by multiple FLS joining from two countries: Argentina and Turkey.
COT- Centro De Ortopedia Y Traumatologia Rosario and Sanatorio Santa Fe represent two new FLS from the private sector in Argentina, and Clínica Universitaria Privada Reina Fabiola is a University Hospital clinic affiliated with the Universidad Católica de Córdoba. The Map of Best Practice now displays 12 FLS from Argentina.

Pamukkale University Medical Faculty Hospital is a university hospital affiliated with the Pamukkale Üniversitesi. These new additions doubled the number of FLS in Turkey on the Map from 4 to 8.
We congratulate all FLS joining the Capture the Fracture® Map of Best Practice for continuing to improve post-fracture patient care and reduce spiraling fracture-related healthcare costs worldwide.
