The Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) in New York, US, has received a $10m grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) to expand its main campus and build the HSS Kellen Tower.

The tower will feature a Digital Inpatient Experience on three floors, including modern patient rooms, which will be named after the SNF.

This grant builds upon the longstanding partnership between HSS and the SNF, which has supported various initiatives such as joint reconstruction centres, orthopaedic seminars, visitor programmes, and fellowships.

The contribution from SNF will enable HSS to provide care to more individuals and centralise resources for patients with complex needs.

SNF co-president Andreas Dracopoulos said: “Every single person should have access to expert medical care, and visionary leaders like Tom Sculco and everyone at HSS are essential to this collective effort.

“Construction of the Kellen Tower is a milestone for HSS, but in truth, the institution never stops building skills among early-career surgeons, international pathways of knowledge exchange, new approaches to treatment, and new frameworks for delivering the best care possible.

“We are proud to support HSS in its commitment to excellence in improving health for all.”

Expected to open in 2025, the Kellen Tower will serve as a specialised hub for the treatment of complex orthopaedic conditions, offering the highest standard of care.

HSS surgeon-in-chief emeritus and SNF complex joint reconstruction centre director Thomas P. Sculco said: “We are profoundly grateful to SNF and Andreas Dracopoulos for their longstanding and extraordinary friendship, leadership, and generosity over the past 20 years.

“From establishing training programmes that immerse visiting surgeons from Greece in our clinical and research programmes to naming the first centre in the world dedicated to the care of patients with complex joint conditions and revision surgery, SNF has been a catalyst for improving musculoskeletal care globally.

“This new commitment will allow HSS to care for more people and centralise resources for patients with the most complex needs.”
