Bon Secours Health System has congratulated Micheál Martin on becoming Taoiseach and was pleased to host Mr Martin last autumn when it officially opened the new Bon Secours Cork Cancer Centre, marking the completion of the wider €77 million expansion of the hospital.
Pictured in the centre with Mr Martin is Bill Maher, Group CEO of the Bon Secours Health System; to the right of Mr Maher is Bons Chairperson Peter Lacy and Chuck Bogosta, president of UPMC International, and to the left of Mr Martin is Harry Canning, Hospital Manager at Bon Secours Hospital Cork.
The new Bon Secours Cork Cancer Centre offers the most technologically advanced radiotherapy services in the south of Ireland through a partnership between the hospital and UPMC Hillman Cancer Centre, part of US-based academic medical centre UPMC which is affiliated with the University of Pittsburgh. With medical, surgical and radiation oncology all under one roof, the new centre is a holistic cancer offering that is providing integrated cancer care, including rapid screening, timely diagnosis and advanced treatment.
Part of a wider €150 million investment in the Bon Secours Health System, the redevelopment of the Cork hospital includes 81 private rooms, 4 additional operating theatres, a new 23-bed day infusion ward and a new Critical Care Unit.
