Northwell Health said Thursday it has opened The Orthopedic Hospital at Long Island Jewish Valley Stream.
The 9,761-square-foot facility is located on the hospital’s second floor.
Northwell said it invested $13.5 million to build the hospital, which includes 18 private patient rooms, operating rooms and a physical therapy unit. It will have clinical staff who specialize in general orthopedics, fractures, sports medicine, and foot and ankle, hand, total joint replacement and spine surgery.
Surgeons from Orlin & Cohen Orthopedic Group and Northwell’s orthopedic service will use the Valley Stream orthopedic hospital for surgical and nonsurgical treatments, including arthroscopic and minimally invasive procedures.
Orlin & Cohen joined the Northwell Health system in 2017.
New Hyde Park-based Northwell Health, with 68,000 employees, is the largest private employer in the state.
