Affidea Ireland begin work in Letterkenny

Affidea, Ireland’s leading independent diagnostic imaging provider, formerly known as Euromedic, today announced its plans to open a new medical scanning facility in Letterkenny this June, to serve the people of Donegal and surrounding areas.

Patients who want to arrange a private scan in the Republic of Ireland currently face a two hour drive to Sligo. The company is creating ten jobs and is investing €2m in opening the Letterkenny clinic, as part of an overall €15m investment in the Irish healthcare sector.

Construction work has already started at the clinic, which will include a multi-modality scanning centre located on Scally Place off Pearse Road in Letterkenny. It will serve as a primary care diagnostic scanning facility, offering MRI, Ultrasound and X-ray. Affidea Letterkenny will be equipped with state of the art technology including the High Specification Philips Ingenia Wide Bore MRI Scanner, providing the highest quality scans and a much improved patient experience, particularly for patients who experience claustrophobia or those who find it difficult to tolerate the noise of older scanners.

Affidea clinics are accredited with the internationally recognised standard in ambulatory care from the Joint Commission International (JCI) and will operate the new clinic in Letterkenny to the same exacting standards while undergoing the accreditation process.

Tom Finn, CEO of Affidea, said: “Today is a landmark in a primary healthcare evolution for Donegal and the North West. The Letterkenny clinic will serve to ensure local patients have greater accessibility to medical scans, quickly, professionally and to the highest of standards. The new clinic will ensure patients can receive the timely attention they need in a primary care environment, rather than hospital based setting. Affidea currently offers an ultrasound service in conjunction with the HSE from the same building and from June will offer an expanded and seamless service to public and private patients”

Affidea has recently rebranded from Euromedic, to ensure a uniform identity across Europe, and to aid European growth and support the organisations aggressive global expansion plans. Affidea entered the Irish market in March 2007 through the acquisition of MRI Ireland. Over the past eight years, six further locations have been added to the network in Ireland with more centres expected nationwide over the coming months.
