Inpatient Rooms

Many patients who stay overnight choose to stay in semi-private rooms. Semi-private rooms are occupied by two patients of the same gender and similar procedures. Inpatient private rooms are available at an additional cost. Even though private rooms are limited and based on availability, we will do our best to accommodate your request. At HSS, we offer four types of private rooms: Classic, Classic Select, Premier and Premier Select. The Premier and Premier Select rooms located on our 11 North unit feature a larger seating area and an additional set of amenities.

Also note: due to clinical needs, there are different procedures and visitation policies for the Recovery Room (PACU) post-surgery.

Parking icon


Since street parking in Manhattan is very limited, it may be necessary for a car to be parked in a commercial garage. While HSS does not validate parking at this time, we recommend you review our HSS Parking Guide for a list of nearby parking garages that offer discounts at various times of day.
