3fivetwo Group, Northern Ireland’s largest private healthcare company, has agreed to acquire St Joseph’s Hospital in Sligo, with the sale expected to close in coming weeks.

 

The 19-bed private hospital in Garden Hill will be rebranded Kingsbridge Private Hospital Sligo, after the Group’s flagship property, Kingsbridge Private Hospital in Belfast.

  

All 60 staff jobs at the hospital, which utilises 50 consultants across 25 specialties, will be secured and 3fivetwo aims to create new jobs and foster a wider range of services going forward.

 

3fivetwo Group has already been successful in HSE tenders and is building a long term relationship with key stakeholders in the South.

 

Mark Regan, Group Development Director, said: “This is good news for the North West and good news for 3fivetwo, continuing our growth in the healthcare sector and enhancing our position as a vertically integrated healthcare provider which offers true patient choice.

 

“We have just announced a £3m expansion of our Belfast operation and are constantly seeking new opportunities for growth in Ireland, the UK and USA, having recently partnered with a Philadelphia company to develop a Telehealth product.”

 

3fivetwo Group has a multi-million pound turnover and employs 240 staff, along with the services of 400 consultants and 300 nursing staff.

 

Group companies include Kingsbridge, 3fivetwo Healthcare, H3 Health Insurance, the Training Academy, Origin Fertility Care, Dental Excellence, Optique eye and ear care and cosmetic surgery wing, Cosmetech.

 

St Joseph’s current range of surgical and diagnostic services includes outpatients, endoscopy, cardiology, general surgery, oral surgery, gynaecology, dermatology, plastics, ENT, urology, pain management, ultrasound, anesthesia, physiotherapy, neurology and orthopaedics.

 

Mark Towey, Chief Executive of St Joseph’s, said: “This acquisition is an extremely positive development for the hospital, providing an opportunity to consolidate and expand the services it provides as part of an established healthcare group and underlining our role as a provider of quality healthcare services, across the west coast of Ireland.”

 

St Joseph’s Hospital was founded in the 1950s and until early last year was part of the Mount Carmel Medical Group.
