June 2020 News – Beaumont Hospital – New BCI Clinical Research Unit

Construction of the New Breast Clinic has commenced on the Beaumont Hospital Campus.

The new Breast Clinic will be located adjacent to the RCSI Education and Research Centre and the Emergency Department on the Hospital Campus.

Diagnostic imaging will be housed on the ground floor and will include two new 3D tomosynthesis mammography machines which offer significant advances in cancer detection for women with dense breast tissue.

The first floor will include eight consultation rooms and a counselling room for patients diagnosed with breast cancer.

The top floor will house offices for administration, specialist breast care nurses and the Cancer Clinical Trials and Research Unit which provides access for suitable patients to experimental therapies.

The building has been designed by Moloney O’Beirne Architects and Felix O’Hare & Co. have been appointed as the Main Contractors.

The project is the brainchild of Consultant Breast Surgeon, Professor Arnie Hill who has been guiding the development of a first-class breast service at Beaumont Hospital since 2006.

Senator David Norris and Professor Hill launched Beaumont Hospital Foundation’s fundraising appeal which is inviting the public to help them raise much needed funds for the project.

Brendan Merry & Partners are delighted to be involved with this exiting project and look forward to opening the new facility at the end of next year.
