Beacon Hospital owner to give hospital extra €10m

The extra €10 million will be used to fund the hospital’s extension, which will include an expanded orthopaedic unit and 31 new beds.

The hospital is hiring 35 new staff to man the unit, which is set to be completed next month and is due to open in July. The extension will bring the number of beds at the Beacon to over 210. The hospital is a full-service facility and treats about 9,000 patients a year.
