UPMC to acquire leading clinic in Dublin, Ireland 

January 24, 2023 – In a move that will dramatically expand UPMC’s ability to provide world-class orthopaedic and sports medicine care in Ireland, the health system announced that it is acquiring the renowned Sports Surgery Clinic (SSC), a leading independent hospital located in the northern Dublin suburb of Santry.   

Well-known for its care of patients and athletes across Ireland and Europe, SSC will become part of UPMC’s global network of orthopaedic, sports medicine and rehabilitation facilities, and will also become UPMC’s fourth hospital in Ireland, joining UPMC Whitfield in Waterford, UPMC Kildare in Clane and UPMC Aut Even in Kilkenny, along with sports medicine and outreach facilities across the country.   

Founded in 2007 by  orthopaedic surgeon Ray Moran, M.D., and accredited by The Joint Commission International, the 101-bed SSC has become a center of excellence for joint replacement and surgery for sports soft tissue injuries in Ireland. SSC currently has more than 40 consultants in orthopaedic surgery and allied specialties, supported by a team of more than 400 nurses, physiotherapists and other health care professionals.   

The pending acquisition is just the latest expansion of UPMC’s clinical care in Ireland. In addition to the current three hospitals and concussion network, UPMC operates two advanced radiotherapy centers, three sports medicine clinics and several outpatient facilities across the country.
