UPMC completes acquisition of Ireland hospital

Pittsburgh-based UPMC has completed the acquisition of Sports Surgery Clinic, an independent hospital specializing in orthopedic surgery in Dublin, Ireland.

Sports Surgery Clinic is UPMC's fourth hospital in Ireland. The health system also operates UPMC Whitfield in Waterford, UPMC Kildare in Clane and UPMC Aut Even in Kilkenny, along with sports medicine, cancer and outreach facilities across the country.  

Founded in 2007 and accredited by the Joint Commission International, the 101-bed hospital has become a center of excellence for joint replacement and surgery for sports-related soft tissue injuries in Ireland. 

"The addition of SSC positions UPMC as an all-Ireland network of care and builds upon our commitment to clinical excellence since establishing our first cancer center here in 2006," David Beirne, senior vice president of UPMC International, said in a news release. "This acquisition is just the latest expansion of UPMC's clinical care in Ireland and complements our existing network of orthopedic care in the U.S. and Europe."
