05 NOVEMBER 2018 / NY Landmarks Conservancy Honors SNF Partner, Dr. Thomas Sculco

On Thursday, November 1st, 2018, the New York Landmarks Conservancy held its annual Living Landmarks Celebration, honoring exceptional New Yorkers.

Among the honorees was Dr. Thomas Sculco, MD, Surgeon-in-Chief Emeritus at the Hospital for Special Surgery and Director of the Stavros Niarchos Complex Joint Reconstruction Center there.

Through collaboration with Dr. Sculco, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) has been a longstanding partner for the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS). Most recently, a $10 million SNF grant supports diagnosis and treatment for patients with the most challenging conditions in joint reconstruction, regardless of financial need, through the SNF Complex Joint Reconstruction Center at HSS. Spanning more than a decade, SNF’s collaboration with HSS has also included the Stavros Niarchos Foundation-Thomas Sculco Fellowship Program, the HSS-Stavros Niarchos Foundation Orthopaedic Seminars and Academic Visitor Programs to provide professional training to Greek orthopedic surgeons, and endowment of the Thomas P. Sculco Chair in Orthopedic Surgery.

The New York Landmarks Conservancy advocates for the preservation and reuse of landmark buildings around the city. SNF provided support to the Living Landmarks Celebration in honor of Dr. Sculco, and supports cultural heritage conservation efforts around the world through organizations like the World Monuments Fund.
