LIMERICK'S most advanced private cardiology, diagnostic imaging and health screening centre, Beacon Limerick, was officially opened this Thursday afternoon by John Kiely.

Believe it or not this is the first time the Limerick hurling manager has been invited to open anything!

"It’s a very exciting day for the county as Beacon Limerick officially opens its doors. From doing a tour of the modern and spacious clinic and speaking with the consultants, it’s fantastic to hear about the proactive approach to healthcare being offered through the HealthCheck screening service, and to see the huge investment in healthcare technology," said Mr Kiely.

Michael Cullen, CEO of Beacon Hospital, said they were delighted to officially open Beacon Limerick.

"The clinic is equipped with state-of-the-art modern medical and surgical equipment. Our consultants, nurses, radiographers, physiologists and administrative staff are top of their field and will bring leading patient care to the people of Limerick and the Mid-West," said Mr Cullen.


"This marks a significant milestone for Beacon Hospital as we continue to invest and expand in both our Dublin campus and our regional satellite clinics, with Beacon Limerick a key part of our future," he added.
