Coast to Coast Program

Welcome to the Coast to Coast Program at Hospital for Special Surgery! We recognize that you have many choices out there for your care and there are many decisions to be made. Yet Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) has the best team of specialists in the world. Ninety-four percent of our patients travel some distance to get to HSS - from all 50 states and more than 100 countries.

Therefore, we want to help you! The Coast to Coast (C2C) Program was created by our President & CEO and the Ambassador Services Department to assist our traveling domestic patients and families with their accommodative needs. Whether it’s hotels and parking, neighborhood services and transportation, or inpatient rooms and clinical inquiries, we want to be a resource to point you in the right direction.

Please check out our website to find out all of the resources that are available to you - Before, During and After Your Visit. And remember, if you have any questions, we are simply just a "click" away. But, most importantly, we thank you for choosing HSS!
