UPMC Whitfield partners with Wexford Bus to promote ease of access to quality healthcare in the South East

UPMC Whitfield Wexford BusUPMC Whitfield, the largest private hospital in the South East, has partnered with Wexford Bus, a growing commercial bus company, to promote ease of access to quality healthcare services for patients across the region.

The partnership will see buses operating between Wexford and Dublin, Carlow and Waterford bear the UPMC Whitfield logo and colours, and highlight the availability of a dedicated centre of medical excellence for patients in the region – with the Wexford to Waterford service terminating at UPMC Whitfield.

UPMC Whitfield has over 50 expert consultants working across a range of specialties, including radiotherapy, cardiology, orthopaedics, ophthalmology, oncology / haematology, radiology, ear, nose and throat, gynaecology, urology and general surgery. These are supported by a wider team 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.

Wexford Bus connects the major towns and cities across the South East. Its busses travel from Wexford to Waterford, Carlow and Dublin city and airport, and between Arklow, Wicklow and Dublin city and airport. Wexford Bus also connects all the key towns along its routes.

David Beirne, CEO at UPMC Whitfield, said: “We’re committed to supporting patients and communities in the South East, and are proud to be collaborating with Wexford Bus to highlight the great transport and health services in the region. Wexford Bus’s services offer patients easy access to some of the best medical professionals and facilities in the country, and we’re looking forward to working with them.”

Brendan Crowley, Managing Director of Wexford Bus said: “We are delighted to have partnered with UPMC Whitfield. When developing our routes and schedules, we strive to accommodate our passengers by bringing them to the key health, education and commercial centres on the route. Our service between Wexford, New Ross and Waterford terminates at UPMC Whitfield to facilitate the ever-increasing number of passengers from the southeast who are attending appointments for a wide range of excellent healthcare services. Wexford Bus started operating between Wexford and Waterford at the end of 2015 and now operates up to eight daily services in each direction.” 

The UPMC Whitfield campus is operated by UPMC, the international not-for-profit healthcare provider and insurer that is transforming the way healthcare is delivered. Already trusted by millions of patients across the world, the company operates more than 40 hospitals, as well as 600 doctors' offices and outpatient sites, and is now delivering this global expertise to those living in the South East of Ireland.

Wexford Bus is owned and operated by Wexford-based Brendan and Lorene Crowley and was established in 1996. The aim was to operate a service around Wexford Town and the surrounding towns and villages. In 2007 the express service between Wexford and Dublin was launched. In 2015, the service between Wexford and Waterford via New Ross was introduced, and in 2018, the service for South Wicklow commenced.

Wexford Bus carried 840,000 passengers in 2018, has a team of over 65 people and a fleet of 35 buses and coaches.
