All our recommendations placed in manufacturer and dealer marketing materials must be based upon the editorial product analysis process and nothing else.

If any member of the editorial team is approached about advertising they must immediately redirect the contact to the sponsorship team. Further, Hospital Tech Review, its holding company, and any partners will make every effort to separate the advertising and editorial functions, both in the nature of its business relationships and the location of different departments.
