STAMFORD, Conn. -- The future of orthopedic care is coming to Fairfield County, thanks to a new partnership between Stamford Health and Hospital for Special Surgery.
The two organizations have formally announced a collaboration to create the premier center for advanced orthopedic care in Connecticut and beyond. The new center, which will be known as HSS Orthopedics at Stamford Health, will provide unrivaled inpatient and ambulatory care and host surgeons from HSS in New York City.
“We believe this strategic and innovative relationship with HSS will elevate our institution to the forefront of musculoskeletal services and further differentiate us from others in the region,” said Brian G. Grissler, president and CEO of Stamford Health. “Through this collaboration, we will create a new Department of Orthopedic Surgery that integrates best practices and expands our capabilities.”
HSS is the world’s leading academic medical center focused on musculoskeletal health and has been ranked the #1 hospital for orthopedics in the U.S. for the past seven years by U.S News & World Report.
“We are drawing upon the very best skills, talent and resources of HSS and Stamford Health in what is truly a transformational collaboration between our two organizations,” said Louis A. Shapiro, president and CEO, Hospital for Special Surgery. "This revolutionary alliance will bring world-class orthopedic care closer to home for thousands of Connecticut residents, so fewer will need to leave the state for such care.”
HSS Orthopedics at Stamford Health will be located on the fifth floor of the new Stamford Hospital building late this year, and later this month, at Tully Health Center.
“Stamford Health has been providing care to the residents of Fairfield County for more than 120 years,” said Grissler. “Building upon our existing foundation of service, magnet status nursing and a brand new hospital, this collaboration will take their orthopedic services to the next level.”
