Adare Private Hospital and Clinic today signed a management contract with Ramsay Health Care, who will operate the new facility from its opening in January 2010. Ramsay Health Care is a leading international group with over 40 years’ experience in delivering high quality private healthcare.
The Adare Private Hospital and Clinic will comprise 75 inpatient beds and extensive facilities for day cases, ideal for innovative modern surgical practice. Situated on the Adare Estate, the hospital is the first stage in the development of an extensive medical campus. Unlike many private hospitals, it is planned to offer facilities for medical education on the site and to have close links with the Limerick University Medical School.
Entrepreneur Tom Kane is the owner of the Adare estate and the architect of this innovative new health project.
Tom said: “We are fully committed to making Adare Hospital and Clinic one of the most outstanding private medical facilities in Ireland. This will be achieved not only by providing patients with the highest standard of service available, but also through advancing medical education opportunities through our unique linkup with the Medical School at the University of Limerick”
The first stage of construction is due to start in May, and Ramsay will provide technical and support service throughout the hospital’s development phase. The Ramsay team are now working with specialist medical and surgical consultants local to Limerick, to finalise the equipment and specifications for the hospital facilities.
