Re: 130m euro Private Hospital for Blarney
😮 Another one – before Christmas we saw a flurry of hotel development applications for Cork city, now it seems, its private hospitals.
Fleming Construction intend to part finance the development of a new 130m euro 100-bed private hospital as part of its 2214-unit residential development north of Blarney. The hospital will be based on the Galway and Blackrock Clinics (developed by the Sheehan Bros. among others). It is expected to have 5 state-of-the-art operating theatres, a full physiotherapy suite, consultant suites, outpatients facilities, day-surgery etc.
– this comes after the recent revelation of plans for 3 other private hospitals for Cork, among them solicitor James G. O’Mahony intends to lodge an application with Cork County Council for a 500m euro medical campus and residential development on the city fringe at the Bandon Road Roundabout, along the N25. That development is expected to be overseen by the Beacon Court Group (who currently have a facility in operation at Sandyford, Dublin). Another plan is earmarked for a superb 7.5 acre city centre site in conjunction with an existing Cork health institution.
If all 4 applications make the cut – that could mean that an extra 400 private beds will be made available to the city and county.
