Hospital for Special Surgery Plans Hudson Yards Clinic
Hospital for Special Surgery is opening a clinic at 35 Hudson Yards, the medical institution announced Tuesday.
The orthopedic hospital plans to establish a 15,000-square-foot outpost in the 72-story, 1.1-million-square-foot mixed-use tower. The building under construction at the corner of 11th Avenue and West 30th Street will hold 143 condominiums, a 217-key hotel and gym operated by Equinox, and six floors of office space. As the anchor tenant, Equinox will also occupy 180,000 square feet of office space in the skyscraper. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group are developing the 1,009-foot-tall building, which is just one piece of the two companies’ 18-million-square-foot Far West Side megaproject.
The Hudson Yards facility will have therapists and doctors who treat, diagnose and manage musculoskeletal conditions, according to the press release from HSS. Crain’s New York Business was the first to write about the clinic, which is expected to open in 2019.
“We are expanding the HSS system as part of a broader strategy to bring world-class care closer to where quality-minded consumers live and work,” Louis Shapiro, the CEO and president of HSS, said in a statement. “The Hudson Yards location will also enable us to help more large employers to control the large and rising costs of musculoskeletal conditions.”
The terms of the deal and brokers involved were not released.
“We are thrilled to welcome HSS to Hudson Yards,” a Related spokeswoman said in a statement. “HSS has a world-renowned reputation and their new location will offer the area’s residents and employees convenient access to physician offices, diagnostic imaging and physical therapy services.”
The orthopedics and rheumatology hospital isn’t the only medical provider to set up shop in Hudson Yards. Mount Sinai Medical Center also aims to open a concierge medical facility on the second floor of 55 Hudson Yards, as Commercial Observer previously reported. The 18,000-square-foot clinic will exclusively serve the residents and employees of commercial tenants at Hudson Yards.
