CorkUniversity Hospital’s new €85m Cardiac Renal Centre was officially opened on Friday 22nd October 2010, by An Taoiseach, Mr Brian Cowen TD.

The Centre, which commenced construction in July 2007, following an 8 year planning phase, was handed over to CUH in early 2010.  Spanning 13,000m2 over 6 floors, the new Unit represents the most significant service development in the region to date in relation to Cardiology, Cardiothoracic Surgery and Renal Medicine respectively. This development of the Centre has been a consultative process throughout involving staff and patient representatives from the Irish Heart Foundation and the Irish Kidney Association.
