New York City-based Hospital for Special Surgery is moving forward with a controversial expansion plan it launched 10 years ago, according to Crain's New York Business.

 

Five things to know:

1. The 12-story building would include around 2015 private patient rooms as well as office space and imaging services. Hospital for Special Surgery aims to renovate its current location in the coming years, and the new tower would increase capacity.

2. The tower would offer a centralized location for care providers, triage care between physicians and care providers spread across multiple locations.

3. Hospital for Special Surgery hopes to break ground in the next year, after initially receiving approval to build in the new location in 1992. The project stalled, and Hospital for Special Surgery eventually filed a land-use application in 2006 and obtained approval in 2018.

4. Nearby residents and a co-op located near the new site previously filed lawsuits to prevent the building, but the cases have been dismissed in court. The hospital will contribute $1.8 million to constructing a walkway in the neighborhood.

5. The hospital will fund the project with philanthropy and new debt.
