New York, NY—January 15, 2016
Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), a world leader in orthopedics, rheumatology and rehabilitation, today announced the signing of a lease to establish an outpatient center in Westchester County, New York.
Located near I-287 and the Hutchinson River Parkway at 1133 Westchester Avenue in White Plains, NY, the center will be approximately 50,000 square feet, making it the largest of the HSS outpatient centers. Other locations include Fresh Meadows, Queens; Uniondale, Long Island; Paramus, NJ; Stamford, CT, and several sites in Manhattan.
The center will include many of the state-of-the-art specialties and technologies that have earned HSS #1 ranking in the U.S. for Orthopedics for each of the past six years, by U.S.News & World Report's Best Hospitals Report. The outpatient center will make access to world-class care more convenient for residents in the greater New York region.
"HSS is dedicated to providing access to high quality specialty care and our increased presence in regional communities is evident," said Louis A. Shapiro, president and CEO of HSS. "This new location gives us a unique opportunity to create a facility ideal for Westchester County residents who want the unmatched excellence of HSS closer to home."
With the lease signed, construction is set to begin in September 2016 with an anticipated opening in the fourth quarter of 2017.
Hospital for Special Surgery is located on Manhattan's upper eastside and attracts patients from 105 countries and all 50 states seeking the world's finest musculoskeletal care.
