At Hospital for Special Surgery, every doctor, surgeon, nurse and therapist is focused on caring for patients with musculoskeletal conditions. Collectively, we treat the most complex cases imaginable. Our doctors have one goal: to deliver an unmatched level of personalized care to patients.

Unparalleled success
HSS is the first hospital in New York to receive four consecutive Magnet Program designations. Among Magnet-designated hospitals, we have been in the 99th percentile for “likelihood to recommend” for 34 consecutive quarters (over eight years). HSS recently received the Press Ganey Guardian of Excellence Award in the Patient Experience category for the third consecutive year.
