Health Screening service at UPMC Outreach Centre in Carlow.

25 March 2024  UPMC has launched a new Health Screening service at its Outreach Centre in Carlow. This extends UPMC’s service offering at the clinic and encourages individuals to take proactive steps towards their health and wellbeing.

Health Screening offers comprehensive assessments designed to assess various aspects of health. A review of each patient’s own and family medical history will be conducted, combined with a detailed physical examination that covers blood pressure, hearing tests, vision tests, as well cardio-respiratory and musculoskeletal health. A full blood analysis will also be conducted with additional tests and diagnostics undertaken, where indicated.

The service will be led by experienced clinicians, enabling timely intervention for many chronic conditions and diseases. UPMC’s Health Screening service takes a tailored approach for each patient, using state-of-the-art medical equipment and cutting-edge diagnostic tools to ensure accuracy and reliability in detecting potential health issues.

"We are thrilled to introduce our Health Screening Service, marking another significant step in our mission to provide healthcare services to patients across Ireland", said Val Caffrey, Chief Operating Officer at UPMC Ireland. "This service is about leveraging our expertise and technologies to provide expert medical guidance and empower individuals to prioritise their health.”

Early detection of health risks allows for prompt intervention and proactive management, potentially preventing the onset of chronic conditions and improving long-term health outcomes.

Speaking about the launch of the new service, Eamonn Fitzgerald, Managing Director, UPMC Ireland said, “At UPMC we know that preventive healthcare is the cornerstone of a healthier future.
