Cork is about to get Ireland’s most high tech hospital following an announcement by Irish private hospital operator, Sheehan Medical that Siemens will deliver the latest medical diagnostic technology for their new Cork Medical Centre.


Opening this month Cork Medical Centre will be a technology-driven hospital with the newest and most promising interventions for stroke, brain tumours, back pain and other sites of chronic pain. 


Said Sheehan Medical chief executive James Sheehan Jnr: ‘‘We aim to make Cork Medical Centre the most high tech facility ever developed in Ireland.”


Siemens will provide a suite of equipment, including its flagship angiography, the Artis zee Biplane flat panel detector for advanced imaging in interventional radiology, cardiology and neuroradiology investigations.


“Increasingly patients and physicians prefer minimally invasive therapy over surgery because of the reduced recovery time. With the Artis zee Biplane technology, these interventions can be much quicker and Cork Medical Centre will take delivery of the latest biplane technology to enhance clinicians’ ability to diagnose, guide and treat disease whether cardiac, neuro or oncology,” explained head of Siemens Healthcare Ireland, Kevin Dand.
