Affidea ExpressCare in Tallaght Cross East
Affidea, Europe’s leading diagnostic imaging provider, is investing once again in the Irish health system with the introduction of Affidea ExpressCare to Dublin, following the success of the first ExpressCare Clinic in The Elysian in Cork.
Affidea ExpressCare provides high quality treatment for patients with minor injuries and illnesses; offering an alternative to a traditional, highly pressurised hospital setting. Affidea ExpressCare will open at Tallaght Cross East in June, adjacent to Affidea’s flagship multi-modality scanning centre that offers X-rays, MRI, Ultrasound and CT scans.
The state-of-the-art ExpressCare facilities provide access to outstanding healthcare, without an appointment, from 10am to 10pm, 365 days per year. Affidea ExpressCare is committed to providing an efficient service, including seeing patients within a one-hour turnaround time, and children over one-year of age can attend.
Barry Downes, Country Manager, Affidea Ireland, said; “Affidea ExpressCare represents another multi-million investment in the Irish health system. Patients can receive attention quickly, professionally and to the highest of standards in an outpatient environment, with minimal waiting times.
“Affidea ExpressCare also provides immediate access to our full suite of diagnostic services for our patients should they require them, all within the same clinic, which is a unique benefit. We are very proud to deliver the highest quality medical services from our staff in a timely and stress-free manner for our patients.”
Tommy Drumm, MD of Collen Construction, said; “We are delighted to work on our sixth major project with Affidea, delivering high quality builds to the highest safety and environmental standards.
“Our important work in Tallaght follows the successful completion of ExpressCare Cork, installation of two new MRI machines in Dundrum and another in Northwood, and the refurbishment of Affidea Dundrum in 2016. We commend Affidea on their investment plan for the Irish healthcare sector and wish them continued success.”
ExpressCare operates independently, as is the case with Affidea Diagnostics, providing services to all patients who attend on a fee-for-service basis or, alternatively for patients with Private Health Insurance with Laya Healthcare and Irish Life Health, Affidea ExpressCare is a covered benefit.
