In a new article by CNBC, Hospital for Special Surgery discusses collaborative relationships with third-party hospitals both locally and across the globe. HSS is getting bigger by helping others get better.
"154 years of specialization gives HSS the opportunity and responsibility to focus on sustainable leadership, at a time when quality is the answer to meeting the global challenges of surging demand and cost," said Louis A. Shapiro, CEO and president of HSS.
The HSS Global Orthopedic Alliance systematically transfers knowledge, protocols and support from HSS to achieve different degrees of transformation. Through the Alliance, HSS provides mentorship, education and consulting to hospital systems that want to specialize in musculoskeletal care. To date, this includes Brazil, Greece, Ghana, China, South Korea and England.
"We've had great success exporting our brand to other health systems around the world," said Charles N. Cornell, MD, orthopedic surgeon at HSS and medical director at HSS Orthopedics at Stamford Health.
"People come to HSS from all over the world," added Mr. Shapiro. "But the entire world doesn't come to New York."
