 Hospital for Special Surgery to Establish an Outpatient Center In Westchester County
Founded in 1863, Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) is a world leader in orthopedics, rheumatology and rehabilitation. HSS is nationally ranked No. 1 in orthopedics, No. 3 in rheumatology and No. 7 in geriatrics by U.S. News & World Report (2015-2016), and is the first hospital in New York State to receive Magnet Recognition for Excellence in Nursing Service from the American Nurses Credentialing Center three consecutive times.

HSS has now 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; several sites in Manhattan; and HSS Spine and Sport in Jupiter, FL.

The center will include many of the state-of-the-art specialties and technologies. The outpatient center will make access to world-class care more convenient for residents in the greater New York region.

Louis A. Shapiro, president and CEO of HSS, said, "HSS is dedicated to providing access to high quality specialty care and our increased presence in regional communities is evident. 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."

Westchester County Executive Robert P. Astorino said, "Westchester could not be more pleased to welcome Hospital for Special Surgery to the county. Our team worked hard to make this a reality. HSS and the county are leaders when it comes to providing for quality of life. The new outpatient center is another step forward."

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.
