New York City-based Hospital for Special Surgery honored two physicians and announced a $12 million multiyear gift from billionaire Kenneth Griffin.

Steven B. Haas, MD, chief of the knee service, and Hollis Potter, MD, chair of radiology and imaging were honored on June 3 for their work, according to a June 4 news release. 

"Both Drs. Haas and Potter exemplify the qualities that make HSS unique: their unwavering dedication to providing the highest quality of care; consistent efforts to advance the science in their respective fields; and their leadership in developing new techniques, technologies and treatment advances that have transformed the lives of patients around the world," Douglas Padgett, MD, HSS surgeon-in-chief and medical director, said in the release.

The $12 million gift from Mr. Griffin will establish the Kenneth C. Griffin Research Accelerator for orthopedics. The gift will also support construction of the HSS Kellen Tower, which is expected to open in 2025.
