Irish-owned Waterstone Clinic, formerly known as Cork Fertility Centre, has opened a state-of-the-art national centre of excellence at Lotamore House in Cork.
The 13,000 sq ft advanced fertility unit features a world-class laboratory with the latest embryology technology. Staff numbers at the clinic will increase by 30% to 55 as a result of the investment.
Waterstone Clinic, which consistently has one of the highest live birth rates in Europe, includes Cork Fertility, now relocated from its College Road premises to Lotamore House, and Waterford Fertility and Limerick Fertility.
Due to Dublin's increasing number of patients, a fourth clinic, Dublin Fertility, has opened on Leeson Street.
As the clinic's medical consultants also hold Health Service Executive consultant posts, they can directly manage the care of any patients who require hospital admission or surgery.
The cutting-edge clinic is also the first in Ireland to use the new time-lapse incubator, EmbryoScope Plus. The system, which allows for the comprehensive monitoring of embryo development, will be provided free-of-charge.
