PITTSBURGH (AP) - The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center is expanding its cancer care network in Ireland by entering a partnership on a new radiation therapy center in the country.

UPMC announced its collaboration with Bon Secours Health System on a joint venture to expand the Maryland-based nonprofit’s campus in Cork, Ireland.

The six-story facility will begin offering radiation therapy for cancer patients beginning in 2019. It will be the second radiation center operated by UPMC in Ireland. UPMC opened its first, the Whitfield Cancer Centre in Waterford, in 2006. That facility was the hospital system’s first international cancer center.

Bon Secours is Ireland’s biggest independent hospital group. They operate hospitals in Cork, Dublin, Galway and Tralee.

UPMC also manages a cancer radiation center in Rome, Italy.
