Preventive Medicine Health Promotion
St. Vincent’s University Hospital is an active member of the Irish Health Promoting Hospital (HPH) Network and is committed to the attainment of health gain for our patients, staff and community. The Department of Preventive Medicine and Health Promotion is supported by UCD under the leadership of Professor Cecily Kelleher (Principal of the UCD College of Health and Agricultural Sciences) and the UCD School of Public Health, Physiotherapy and Sports Science.
The hospital has played a pioneering role in preventive medicine and health promotion and provides a range of clinical, educational, one to one and group lifestyle programmes for patients, staff and the community. It has also become a valuable resource for other hospital departments requiring support on the development or evaluation of their own health promotion initiatives.
