To better serve patients, Northwell Health’s Long Island Jewish Valley Stream has opened the orthopedic hospital, officials said Thursday.
Northwell has invested $ 13.5 million in the 9,761-foot facility, located on the second floor of the hospital.
It has 18 private patient rooms, as well as operating theaters and a physiotherapy area. Clinical staff include those who focus on general orthopedics, surgery, fractures, sports medicine, foot and ankle, hand, total joint replacement, and spine surgery.
“The opening of the Orthopedic Hospital is a key milestone at Long Island Jewish Valley Stream that will improve our position in Long Island and Queens,” Steve Bello, executive director of LIJ Valley Stream, said in a statement about the hospital.
Bello said that with the new facility, the hospital takes orthopedic care “to another level by creating charming, patient-centered accommodations in a facility that is still part of a full-service hospital.”
Already, surgeons in the orthopedic group Orlin & Cohen have chosen the facility as a “destination of choice” for its patients, according to Northwell.
