Constance Cowing, New York, NY  hip surgery
The first time I walked in the door of HSS, what hit me with great impact was an impression of the positive atmosphere, which to my great surprise turned out to be consistent. I found the attitudes of staff the same. For the first time, I entered a hospital setting completely surrounded with a relaxed goodwill, which anyone knows under the pressures of modern medicine is very difficult to maintain. After two major hips operations, everyone working there, including administrative, medical, and custodial personnel gave me nothing but positive words, encouraging smiles, and friendliness. more
