Surgical hub to be established at CUH
Last updated on
The Health Minister has announced that Cork University Hospital is one of the sites chosen around the country for the establishment of a surgical hub
The hubs are being developed in key locations on-site with the intent of having an impact on day-case waiting lists in advance of the development of regional elective hospitals.
They will also allow hospitals to focus on other areas of waiting lists as many day-case procedures can be moved to the surgical hubs.
The hub at Cork University Hospital, which is one of six around the country, will be a modular build
It’s hoped the first of these hubs, which are estimated to cost up to 120 million between capital and revenue, will be operational before the end of this year
