galway daily news Minister Donnelly to officially open new UHG Radiation Oncology Centre

Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly will be visiting Galway tomorrow for the official opening of a new Radiation Oncology Centre at UHG.

The new oncology centre includes seven radiotherapy treatment vaults, a brachytherapy suite, two CT rooms, on-treatment support and ancillary physics, treatment planning and administration facilities.

It is built on the site of the former acute mental health unit at UHG.

Plans for the three storey radiation oncology centre were first given the green light by the city council in 2015.

The council approved plans for the demolition of the old Psychiatric unit, along with the link corridor to the hospital’s Paediatric unit, and to build the new centre in its place.

Minister Donnelly will be in Galway on Friday morning to perform the official opening at 11am.
