Construction to begin shortly on new UHG oncology centre

Construction work is set to get underway shortly on the new three storey radiation oncology centre at University Hospital Galway.

When completed the oncology centre will include seven radiotherapy treatment vaults, a brachytherapy suite, two CT rooms, on-treatment support and ancillary physics, treatment planning and administration facilities. 

The centre is being built on the site of the former acute mental health unit at UHG.

Significant work has been underway over the last six months to clear the site to enable construction to begin.

“This is a hugely important development for cancer patients in the West,” said UHG General Manager Ms Chris Kane

“This new state of the art 8,000msq facility will allow us increase our radiotherapy service here in Galway where we provide treatment to patients from across the region.”

The tender process for the construction project is currently being concluded she added, and a contractor is expected to be appointed shortly.

Construction work will take approximately two years after which the unit will be commissioned.
