New York-based HSS has expanded its partnership with Bumin Hospital Group, South Korea's leading orthopedic specialty hospital network.

The partnership began in 2014 when experts from HSS helped Bumin Hospital Group adopt best practices for surgical, nonsurgical and rehabilitation outcomes and operate more efficiently.

The focus of the next phase of the partnership will be on shoring up quality improvement and infection control at Seoul Bumin Hospital and Haeundae Bumin Hospital, with the goal of achieving HSS Center of Excellence designation by 2020.

"HSS is advancing state-of-the-art musculoskeletal care globally through research, innovation, and a variety of collaborations with quality-focused organizations such as Bumin Hospital Group," said Louis Shapiro, president and CEO of HSS.
