Northwell Health has opened its 11th orthopedic location on Long Island.

The health system, which runs 21 orthopedic locations across its footprint, held a grand opening for its $1.5 million Orthopaedic Institute at Huntington last Thursday.

The health system said it expects 200,000 orthopedic patient visits in 2017, which would be a 20 percent year-over-year increase.

The Northwell Health Physician Partners Orthopaedic Institute at Huntington is located at 155 E. Main St.

Northwell expects to open more orthopedic practices.

“The mission is to have measured growth,” said Dr. Nicholas A. Sgaglione, chair of the department of orthopedic surgery at Northwell Health. “It’s not just blind openings.”
