Nation’s oldest orthopedic hospital opens office in Wilton


WILTON — The nation’s oldest orthopedic hospital has opened an office in town.

Founded in 1863, the Hospital for Special Surgery opened an office in Danbury Road in partnership with Stamford Health.

John Finger, senior vice president of the New York regional market for HSS, said Wilton was a prime choice for a new office because of its location along Route 7 between Norwalk and Danbury and its proximity to d other major highways like Interstate-95.

“We love the location,” Finger said of the new digs at Wilton Crossing at 195 Danbury Road.

He also said the hospital and its network are focused strongly on deeper diversification into Connecticut, and that Wilton is the final part of that plan. Finger said a big part of the office’s strategy will be to integrate into the community through athletics.

According to Finger, HSS partners with local high schools and colleges by sending one of its medical professionals to sporting events to ensure safety measures are followed and provide expertise when players are injured.

Finger said HSS works with Greenwich Country Day School and St. Luke’s.

Wilton Schools Superintendent Kevin Smith said the district has partnered with HSS before, including its Health and Wellness Day which featured guest speakers from the organization just before the start of the COVID pandemic.

However, Smith said the district already has a partnership with OrthoConnecticut, which provides medical support for Wilton Sports Games.
