The Bons Secours Hospital in the Galway city is to benefit from a share of a 156 million euro investment.
The private hospital group, Bon Secours Health System, plans to spend almost 160 million euro on expanding and upgrading its facilities across Ireland.
The investment will include buying Barrington’s Hospital in Limerick and a joint venture with University of Pittsburgh Medical Centre in the US.
Bon Secours will spend 150 million euro on new theatres, clinics, beds and consultants’ rooms at the group’s hospitals and centres in Galway, Cork, Dublin, and Kerry over the next four years.
The University of Pittsburgh Medical Centre has agreed to contribute a further €6 million to the cost of a new radiotherapy cancer treatment centre at the group’s headquarters in Cork.
According to the Irish Times, Bon Secours will spend a total of 75 euro million in Cork, and will develop endoscopy and day services in Dublin, a lab in Galway and theatres in Tralee.
