UPMC in Ireland Expands Reach Through Sports Surgery Clinic Acquisition

January 27, 2023

UPMC is expanding its network of orthopaedic, sports medicine, and rehabilitation facilities in Ireland through its recent acquisition of the Sports Surgery Clinic (SSC), an independent hospital located in the north Dublin suburb of Santry.

"With the acquisition of the Sports Surgery Clinic, we will have the ability to expand our already trusted and high-quality care to more patients across Ireland and beyond. SSC will complement our existing network of orthopaedic care in the U.S. and Europe and ensures that we can provide access to care for more patients, close to home," said Chuck Bogosta, president of UPMC International.

The 101-bed hospital is now UPMC’s fourth hospital in Ireland, in addition to UPMC Whitfield in Waterford, UPMC Kildare in Clane, and UPMC Aut Even in Kilkenny. UPMC also operates two cancer centers, three sports medicine clinics, and several outpatient facilities throughout the country.

“The addition of SSC will position 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,” said David Beirne, senior vice president of UPMC International.

Founded in 2007 by orthopaedic surgeon Ray Moran, SSC has become a center of excellence for joint replacement and surgery for sports soft-tissue injuries in Ireland.

“This is an exciting development for all of us involved with Sports Surgery Clinic and we are delighted to be joining forces with UPMC,” said Moran. “It brings together like-minded and innovative teams whose combined experience and expertise will benefit the patients that we serve. We look forward to working with UPMC to build on the legacy of excellence and innovation that the Sports Surgery Clinic has established as we expand the scope and location of our services for the benefit of patients.”
