Excellence: it starts with you
Annual Giving 2014
excellence it starts with you Philanthropy has always been the foundation of our success. HSS relies on the generosity of individual donors, to continue its commitment to providing the best patient care possible. Your support will enable us to pioneer new treatments and improve lives â€“ one patient at a time. Committed to outstanding care Our specialists work together as a team – collaborating on the best approaches to treat complex conditions in ways that others simply can’t. With a 99th percentile rank for “likelihood to recommend”, patient satisfaction is best-in-class. Every dollar in support of our experts means advancing care that much more. A trusted name around the world People travel from all over the U.S. and from nearly 80 countries to seek treatment at HSS. The treatment made possible by collaboration across all specialties is what sets HSS apart – it is also why we are the country’s leading orthopedic hospital. And, our patients trust us just like the pros trust us – HSS is the Official Hospital of the World Champion New York Giants, as well as of five other New York area professional sports franchises and The PGA of America. Innovative approaches to joint preservation and restoration Each day, scientists and researchers work together in laboratories throughout the HSS campus to develop preventative treatments for a broad spectrum of common and complex diseases. The Hospital’s nearly 300 medical staff tackle bench-to-bedside research – private support from donors makes this possible. A reputation earned one patient at a time At HSS, we focus on delivering an exceptional experience, outstanding care and outcomes that help patients return to their active lives. Our team relies on the generosity and commitment of individuals who truly understand how philanthropy makes a difference.
