Excerpt from Crain's Health Pulse
NYU Musculoskeletal Center
NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases is building a $60 million Musculoskeletal Center, which it bills as the “first stand-alone facility in the U.S. where bone and joint patients can seamlessly access clinical care” and research. If approved by the state Department of Health, the new center would compete for patients who prefer to have medical treatment in an outpatient setting instead of a hospital. NYU envisions the proposed center as a one-stop shop. The hospital filed for a certificate of need earlier this month to build the 110,000-square-foot center at East 38th Street and First Avenue. The seven components will be centers for the spine, sports medicine, arthritis and total joint replacement, and comprehensive pain treatment; the Rusk Institute for Outpatient Rehabilitation; the Peter D. Seligman Center for Advanced Therapeutics; and liaisons for the Musculoskeletal Research Center.
