Normally you should keep your voices down when you're in the library. However, in honor of National Medical Librarians Month, we're making a special exception! Since its founding in 1936, the Kim Barrett Memorial Library at HSS has been a vital in-house resource for residents, fellows, and other members of the Hospital's faculty and staff. Medical librarians play a pivotal role in helping staff find and evaluate information resources, which encourage excellence in patient care, teaching, learning, and research conducted by HSS. Please join us in thanking our medical librarians for all that they do in managing a state-of-the-art, modern resource for medical education and research! #hospitalforspecialsurgery

Thank you to EVERYONE for helping to support this important cause. #hospitalforspecialsurgery

“17 years ago, Dr. Bostrom replaced my hip, and last year he performed my hip revision surgery. I could not be happier with the care I received at HSS, so when I began feeling pain in my knees, I knew seeing Dr. Bostrom again was the right choice.” - HSS patient Donald K., who met with HSS hip & knee surgeon Dr. Mathias Bostrom this past week to discuss his condition and treatment options. #HospitalForSpecialSurgery

This morning, we gathered together in our own backyard for the East River Esplanade Groundbreaking Ceremony to announce our commitment to help beautify the esplanade between 70th and 72nd Street on the Upper East Side of New York City. As part of the project, we will re-pave the area, plant new greenery, install a water fountain, as well as put up a sound barrier.
