Project Description

The Radiation Oncology Centre in University Hospital Galway (UHG) is being developed under the National Plan for Radiation Oncology which shall provide centres in Dublin, Cork, and Galway.

8,000 sq.m of accommodation is provided over three levels, with all patient facilities on the ground and first floors. This building capitalizes on the available natural light and includes a range of accommodations including a deep plan atrium, administration areas, entrance, reception, and waiting area. It facilitates six radiotherapy treatment bunkers and on-treatment support facilities, as well as accomodating diagnostic imaging and brachytherapy technologies.

In late 2018, enabling works associated with the development commenced. The enabling works, completed in March 2020, involved the demolition of existing buildings and the construction of a new link building which provides a direct connection between the main hospital building and the pediatric building. In September 2020, construction commenced on the new radiation oncology (RO) building
