Kilcreene Orthopaedic Hospital (Irish: Ospidéal Ortaipéideach Kilcreene) is a public hospital located at Kilcreene in County Kilkenny, Ireland. It is managed by South/Southwest Hospital Group.[1]

History[edit]

The site occupied by the hospital was originally part of the Kilcreene House Estate, the home of the Evans baronets. After the house had been demolished, a modern medical facility was built and opened as Lourdes Orthopaedic Hospital in 1959.[2] In March 2019 the Health Service Executive announced that it would transfer orthopaedic services from the hospital, by then known as Kilcreene Orthopaedic Hospital, to the University Hospital Waterford.[3]

Services[edit]

The hospital provides 50 in-patient beds.[4]
