Ireland: Mater Private opens two day hospitals in Dublin

Mater Private has opened two day hospitals in Cherrywood and Northern Cross, Dublin. The deals amount to an investment of €13m (US$15.4m) million from the Irish healthcare group.

The expansion will also include the recruitment of 50 new hires into the Mater Private Network.

Chief executive John Hurley said that this was the most significant investment by the Mater Private Network in the last decade.

“The opening of the both day hospitals will allow us to provide the best in specialist care through a unique same-day, same-location, patient-centric service, something which has not been seen in Ireland before. This, in turn, will bolster the positive experience of patients in their access to healthcare,” he added.

Situated in suburban Dublin North at Northern Cross and Dublin South at Cherrywood, the Mater Private Day Hospitals should make it easy for those travelling from other parts of the country for an appointment.

Both day hospitals will offer patients the opportunity to complete multiple appointments in just one day – consultation with an expert consultant from the Mater Private; investigative imaging, testing, and diagnosis; reviewing and agreeing treatment plan and treatment planning options all in the one day, without the need to transfer to another building or location.
