NEW YORK, Dec. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), the world’s leading academic medical center focused on musculoskeletal health, will open a new outpatient center in Brooklyn, New York. Located in Industry City at 148-168 39th Street in the same building as the Brooklyn Nets HSS Training Center, this new facility will provide access to high-quality care for this growing community and the NBA team. Industry City is a 16-building, 6 million square-foot manufacturing and innovation campus on the waterfront in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
Nationally ranked No. 1 for orthopedics in the U.S. News & World Report “Best Hospitals” list for the 10th consecutive year (2019-2020), HSS is encouraging better quality of life for people living and working in this vibrant neighborhood.
“Our patients come to us from all over the world, and now we are making it easier for our neighbors in Brooklyn to access the best musculoskeletal care,” said Louis A. Shapiro, president and CEO of HSS. “Industry City is a great home for HSS Brooklyn, convenient for those who live, work, shop or play in this vibrant community.”
“HSS is an exceptional addition to Industry City’s diverse portfolio,” said Andrew Kimball, CEO of Industry City. “We’re proud to provide a home to the top orthopedic provider who will offer unmatched sports performance resources to the surrounding community and beyond, and look forward to opening doors this December.”
The approximately 14,000-square-foot center will offer a full range of non-operative musculoskeletal care and services including a robust physical therapy and sports performance program and MRI and X-ray imaging capabilities.
HSS Brooklyn will feature primary care sports medicine physicians, adult and pediatric rheumatologists, adult and pediatric orthopedic surgeons, and offer immediate access to care for acute sports injuries.
“I’ve been caring for the Brooklyn Nets for 15 years. With this new home base, we have an incredible opportunity to also expand access for this dynamic community,” said Riley J. Williams III, MD, sports medicine surgeon at HSS and medical director of HSS Brooklyn. “We are especially excited to offer sports performance at this location, which allows quick patient access and direct booking.”
Board-certified physical therapists will offer a broad spectrum of contemporary exercise interventions with manual and soft-tissue techniques to treat conditions related to the spine, knee and hip joints and sports related injuries.
“Having direct access to a new state-of-the-art outpatient orthopedic facility at our own training center will only add to the already world-class care our players receive from our performance team, along with doctors and staff at HSS,” said Nets General Manager Sean Marks. “HSS doctors are leaders in their respective fields and having them bring that level of expertise to Brooklyn will be tremendously beneficial to both our team and the Brooklyn community.”
Additionally, the sports performance program will help active individuals of all ages and abilities get back to what they love to do – through services such as performance training, sports-specific evaluations and performance nutrition.
The rehabilitation space will also feature antigravity treadmills; blood-flow restriction training; laser therapy; and motion capture technology.
HSS has been caring for the Brooklyn Nets since 2004; additionally, the HSS Training Center opened in February 2016.
The outpatient center will open in December 2019.
