US-based Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) has leased a 50,000ft² space at 1133 Westchester Avenue in White Plains to build a new outpatient centre in Westchester county, New York.
Located near I-287 and the Hutchinson River Parkway, the new centre will be the largest of the HSS outpatient centres.
Other outpatient centres are located at Fresh Meadows in Queens, Uniondale in Long Island, Paramus in NJ, Stamford in CT, and several sites in Manhattan, as well as HSS Spine and Sport in Jupiter, FL.
The new outpatient centre will include many specialties and technologies, and will make access to world-class care more convenient for residents in the greater New York region.
HSS president Louis Shapiro said: "HSS is dedicated to providing access to high-quality specialty care and our increased presence in regional communities is evident.
"This new location gives us a unique opportunity to create a facility ideal for Westchester county residents who want the unmatched excellence of HSS closer to home."
Construction of the new centre is scheduled to start in September and is expected to be opened in the fourth quarter of next year.
Westchester county executive Robert Astorino said: "Westchester could not be more pleased to welcome Hospital for Special Surgery to the county.
"Our team worked hard to make this a reality. HSS and the county are leaders when it comes to providing for quality of life.
"The new outpatient center is another step forward."
In early 2015, the hospital opened a $12.6m 18,000ft² facility at Chelsea Piers Connecticut in Stamford.
Located on Manhattan’s upper eastside, HSS is a leader in orthopaedics, rheumatology and rehabilitation.
