HSS and Stamford Health Expand Fairfield County Access with the Opening of HSS Orthopedics at Stamford Health-Wilton

Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), in collaboration with Stamford Health, is expanding its access to more area residents in Fairfield County and beyond with the opening of HSS Orthopedics at Stamford Health-Wilton.

The new site broadens access to world-class musculoskeletal care for patients who live in the Wilton area, as well as those living north and south along the Route 7 corridor. The Wilton medical facility, located in the Whitlock Building within the Wilton Crossing complex at 195 Danbury Road, Suite 200, offers a robust range of services: spine, sports medicine, physiatry, and adult reconstructive and joint replacement.

The Wilton facility expands HSS’s network of locations in Connecticut. HSS Stamford at Chelsea Piers Connecticut provides world-class orthopedic care with patient visits, diagnostic capabilities and treatments across a broad range of specialties. The new facility also adds to the greater Fairfield County locations that HSS operates in collaboration with Stamford Health. These include surgical capabilities at HSS Orthopedics at Stamford Health, located on the fifth floor at Stamford Hospital, and at HSS Orthopedics at Stamford Health’s Tully Health Center; patient visits at HSS Orthopedics at Stamford Health-Hamden; and HSS Sports Rehab locations in Stamford, Greenwich, Wilton and New Canaan.

HSS Orthopedics at Stamford Health-Wilton features access to HSS physicians, nurses, support staff, and exam rooms. Patients who need x-rays, MRIs or physical therapy services can visit Stamford Health’s nearby facility at 372 Danbury Road, across from Wilton High School, or HSS Stamford at 1 Blachley Road at Chelsea Piers.

“Our overarching goal with this new location in Wilton, as with all of our other suburban facilities in Fairfield County, is to bring world-class care closer to home for patients who live here,” explains John Finger, senior vice president of NY Regional Market at HSS. “HSS commits fully to the communities we serve by establishing affiliations with local school teams, offering educational programs and sponsoring events to promote health and activity. We live here, we work here and our kids go to school here. We look forward to building a thriving community partnership in Wilton.”

“We’re thrilled to be expanding our collaboration with HSS to serve the community in Wilton,” said Jonathan Bailey, Senior Vice President of Operations and Chief Operating Officer for Stamford Health. “Growing our presence in Wilton represents a multi-year initiative, and these orthopedic offerings will complement the suite of services we already provide patients at our Danbury Road location including Primary Care, Radiology & Lab Services, Physical Therapy and 11 other specialties.”
