The project, which is part of the National Plan for Radiation Oncology (NPRO), will involve the demolition of the psychiatric unit and the development of a new three-story 8,500 m² building.
The new treatment facility will be located at Inis Aoibhinn, on the grounds of the University Hospital Galway, where the Caner Care West's Residential facility is located.
Cancer Care West provides support to cancer patients and their families from all over the West of Ireland including counties Clare, Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Limerick , Mayo, North Tipperary, Roscommon and Sligo.
In mid May the National Development Finance Agency (NDFA) of Ireland selected a consortium led by Balfour Beatty as preferred tenderer for the PPP project to develop 14 Primary Care Centres (PCCs) across the country. The centers range in size from approximately 1,500 m² to 5,000 m² gross floor area.
