A €77 million expansion to a Cork hospital is due to be completed in July this year.
The major project at the Bon Secours Hospital Cork includes a state-of-the-art Radiotherapy Department in partnership with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
The expansion will also provide 81 private rooms, with a new infusion department, four operating theatres and a 10-bed Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
The Minister of State for Mental Health and Older People, Jim Daly TD, turned the sod on the Northern Block Expansion project at the hospital in October 2017.
Speaking at the time, hospital manager Harry Canning said the new radiotherapy centre is an exciting development for the hospital and its patients.
The project will form part of a €150m investment by the Bon Secours Health System across its hospitals.
The others are located in Galway, Limerick, Tralee and Dublin.
More than 330 GPs and Consultants attended the annual GP Study Day in Clayton Silver Springs over the weekend to hear about plans for the hospital’s €77 million expansion.
The Bon Secours GP Study Day is one of the biggest of its kind in Ireland, with the event providing an opportunity for Bon Secours’ Consultants to update the GP community on the latest approaches and treatment options for patients across a wide range of specialties.
Featuring several sessions and interactive discussions over the day, the event was also marked by Hospital Manager Harry Canning’s briefing for attendees on the hospital’s expansion.
The Bon Secours in Cork is the largest private hospital in the country and has been treating patients for more than 100 years.
