Waterstone Clinic (formerly Cork Fertility Centre) opened its new state-of-the-art IVF unit at Lotamore House in 2017. This world class facility incorporates the latest in embryology technology, including the new time-lapse incubator Embryoscope Plus and a dedicated PGD laboratory.
Waterstone Clinic now includes Cork Fertility, Limerick Fertility, Waterford Fertility and Dublin Fertility, so that the majority of patients in the country can now access our service. Our new facilities reflect our achievements and ambitions as a national reproductive healthcare provider of the highest calibre.
The full range of services is available at each centre, with the local team providing care and support. Travel to our clinic in Cork is required only for certain procedures, in order to benefit from our innovations and expertise for the most crucial part of your treatment cycle.
Development of Lotamore House
Lotamore House is an historic 18th century building, surrounded by 12 acres of peaceful parkland. We immediately recognised its potential, having outgrown the space available at our previous premises in College Road, for the development of a new state of the art IVF facility. The house was totally refurbished over a two year period and adapted to its new function in a sensitive manner, preserving its beautiful period details while incorporating 21st century facilities and comforts.
The spacious new unit allows us to provide an even better service for our patients. We endeavoured to make a visit to Lotamore House as stress-free an experience as possible with unlimited parking, roomy waiting areas and andrology facilities to maximise privacy. Other improvements include, a greater number of consultation rooms, recovery rooms and operating theatres. The laboratory has expanded hugely and now extends to over 1500sq. feet. Embryology facilities now include time-lapse incubators, a large cryopreservation storage area and a dedicated Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) lab.
Every detail was considered in designing the new unit in order to create a world class IVF clinic.
Waterstone Clinic is regulated and licensed by the Health Products Regulatory Authority (HPRA), TE-007. We are inspected by the HPRA to ensure compliance with European tissues and cells legislation.
We operate a comprehensive quality management system, with regular internal audits to ensure standards are maintained. We are committed to delivering a professional service to the highest possible ethical and clinical standards.
