Waterford Clinic hint at surprise guests as they prepare for National Ploughing Championships 2018

The team from UPMC Whitfield are getting set for a return visit to the National Ploughing Championships in Screggan, Tullamore which will be held from September 18th – 20th.

For the 3rd year in a row, the team from UPMC Whitfield will be returning to the Dunamaise Health and Wellness Tent - Block: 2; Row no: 29; Stand no: 619 - to chat with visitors about the hospital and cancer centre in the South East.  

Visitors can stop by to learn about the high-quality care available to patients across the South East and the facility’s recent integration with the UPMC academic medical network. Conveniently located in Waterford, clinical care is provided by over 50 expert consultants and a compassionate team of ward and theatre staff in the 70-bed hospital.

While you’re there, be sure to inquire about the current “no excess” orthopaedic promotion. Interested visitors will receive a referral code to avail of any orthopaedic procedure at UPMC Whitfield with excess, shortfall, and co-payment fees all waived.

If that’s not enough to get you excited, make sure you stop by to enter the daily drawing for gift cards. And of course, plenty of goodies will be distributed to visitors. The very popular UPMC hurley grips along with free hi-vis vests for kids will be given out by UPMC staff whom will be at the exhibition stand over the 3 days. It will be a unique opportunity to chat with staff from all disciplines including orthopaedics and radiotherapy.

Be sure to also keep your eye on the UPMC Whitfield Facebook page to see which other surprise callers will be stopping by the tent.

Earlier this year, as part of its expansion of world-class healthcare in Ireland, UPMC acquired Whitfield Clinic and renamed it UPMC Whitfield.  Opened in 2006, it is the largest private hospital in the South-East, serving a half million people in five counties and nationwide.

UPMC Whitfield continues to build on its wide range of existing services, including orthopaedics, ophthalmology, oncology, endoscopy, urology and other surgical specialities. With more than 50 consultants and 180 employees, the hospital has been growing rapidly in the past five years.

Every year UPMC Whitfield Hospital supports events throughout the south-east. These serve as a good opportunity for the staff to interact with the public off-site and promote its services.

This is a real opportunity for the public to meet and question the team from UPMC Whitfield.
