Hospital for Special Surgery with Stamford Health

Pioneering Collaboration Creates Premier Specialty Orthopedics Center

Hospital for Special Surgery and Stamford Health have entered into a unique collaboration to create the premier center for advanced orthopedics in New England, offering a level of inpatient and ambulatory care unrivaled in Connecticut.

Under this collaboration, HSS will manage all orthopedic services provided by Stamford Health. The care for orthopedic patients at the main campus, as well as at the Tully Health Center, will be provided by Stamford Health employees under the Stamford Hospital license.

The collaboration includes dedicated orthopedics spaces, including: two inpatient operating rooms with related pre-operative and recovery space and 19 inpatient beds scheduled in the new Stamford Health hospital tower, with the opportunity for expansion; and two ambulatory operating rooms with related pre-operative and recovery space at the Tully Health Center.

HSS is the world’s largest academic medical center focused on musculoskeletal health and ranked the #1 hospital for orthopedics according to U.S News & World Report (2015-16). Through this unique alliance, HSS Orthopedics at Stamford Health will expand access to leading clinicians, as well as best practices and protocols developed by HSS over its 153 years of experience.
