About UPMC Whitfield
At UPMC Whitfield, We are Making Life Changing Medicine Happen
UPMC Whitfield, previously known as Whitfield Clinic, is the largest private hospital in the South East. Located in Waterford, the facility provides outstanding care to patients for routine surgical ailments, as well as more complex and challenging medical conditions. Established in 2006, UPMC Whitfield provides diagnostic imaging, physiotherapy, radiotherapy and elective surgery to both public and private patients.
In 2018, Whitfield Clinic was acquired by the global healthcare leader UPMC and became UPMC Whitfield.
“UPMC’s mission is to serve our community by providing outstanding patient care and to shape tomorrow’s health system through clinical and technological innovation, research and education.”
UPMC Whitfield has over 50 expert consultants working across a range of specialties including Cardiology; Orthopaedics; Ophthalmology; Oncology/Haematology, Radiology, Ear, Nose and Throat; Gynaecology; Urology and general surgery.
Our team consists of 180 dedicated medical, nursing and administration staff to ensure the 70-bed hospital offers patients the right care, in the right way, at the right time – in a first-class facility that is close to home.
Advanced cancer care services are also provided at the UPMC Whitfield campus. We provide radiotherapy to public and private cancer patients through an agreement with the HSE, meaning patients can have their treatment near where they live.
Part of the UPMC network of Cancer Centres in the United States, these world leaders in cancer services assist in the delivery of the most advanced treatment and care possible to patients in the South East.
