Why Florida? HSS CEO Louis Shapiro & Dr. David Altchek elaborate

Becker’s Spine Review interviews HSS president and CEO, Louis A. Shapiro, and sports medicine surgeon, David W. Altchek, MD, who discussed the opening of HSS Florida and what patients can anticipate when receiving care at the new facility.

Mr. Shapiro explained the significant demand for high-quality orthopedic care in this region was a great opportunity to extend the impact of HSS. “While HSS attracts patients from all 50 states and over 80 countries, we saw nearly 3,000 Floridians at our main campus in New York City in 2019 alone.” He added, “The day we opened, we already had almost 1,000 patient appointments scheduled.”

Dr. Altchek, who is also the founding Medical Director of HSS Florida, noted patients can anticipate the same level of quality care that everyone has come to expect in New York. “This new facility and team are designed to provide patients an unparalleled experience with the highest levels of care and customer service. Patients can expect to receive specialized treatment that is customized to each patient's need. HSS Florida offers a convenient option for area residents who seek care from the country's No. 1 ranked orthopedic hospital.”
