In 2006, UPMC Hillman Cancer Center opened its first international location in Ireland at Whitfield Hospital in Waterford. Since then, UPMC has further cemented its commitment to patients across the South East of Ireland by purchasing Whitfield Hospital in 2018, building a country-wide concussion care network for the diagnosis and treatment of adults and children, and partnering with Bon Secours Radiotherapy in Cork to provide state-of-the art radiotherapy using Varian Edge™ technology.
Situated in Waterford and established in 2006, UPMC Whitfield provides diagnostic imaging, physiotherapy, radiotherapy, and elective surgery in most major specialties.
With locations in Waterford at UPMC Whitfield Hospital and in Cork at Bon Secours Hospital, the UPMC Hillman Cancer Centres bring cutting-edge radiotherapy to area residents. International accreditation was granted to the UPMC Hillman Cancer Center at Whitfield Hospital by Joint Commission International (JCI) in 2008.
Radiation oncology services at UPMC Hillman Cancer Centre at Whitfield include radiation therapy, prostate brachytherapy and PET CT scanning and more. Support services such as nutrition advice and psychological counseling are also available.
At the Cork location, Bon Secours Radiotherapy Cork in partnership with UPMC Hillman Cancer Centre offers patients state-of-the art radiotherapy using Varian Edge™ technology.
