Affidea, Europe’s leading diagnostic imaging provider, is investing in Ireland and has officially opened its first ExpressCare clinic in Ireland in the Elysian building in Cork City to serve the people of Cork and surrounding areas. An Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade Simon Coveney TD, attended the opening of Affidea’s new state-of-the-art clinic.

Affidea’s new ExpressCare clinic in Cork will provide high quality treatment for patients with minor injuries and illnesses, offering an alternative to a traditional, highly pressurised hospital setting. The ExpressCare facility provides access to outstanding healthcare, without an appointment, from 10 am to 10 pm, 365 days per year. Affidea ExpressCare is committed to providing an efficient and effective service, including seeing patients within a one-hour turnaround time.

Richard Smith, Chairman of Affidea Board, said: “The opening of ExpressCare in Ireland is another milestone in the growth of Affidea’s network. Affidea is committed to the expansion of our high-quality outpatient services, and in the last year alone has added 67 new centres to its network across Europe. Our promise is affordable and excellent care with proven medical outcomes delivered using the best digital and medical technologies. Affidea’s clinical excellence has contributed to us receiving many international awards from across the medical and academic communities and has made us a preferred provider for private health insurers. We offer an enhanced service to our patients, playing our part in creating a healthier society, and we are proud to be here today opening ExpressCare in Cork.”

An Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade Mr Simon Coveney TD, said: “I welcome the opening of the first Affidea ExpressCare clinic in Ireland and believe this will be of significant benefit to the people of Cork offering high quality care for the treatment of minor injuries and illnesses. The opening of this new clinic will have a positive impact on the overcrowding being experienced in Emergency Departments in Cork City and I very much welcome this initiative.”

Affidea ExpressCare will operate independently, providing services to all patients who attend on a fee for service basis. Health insurance providers Laya Healthcare and Irish Life Health have confirmed Affidea ExpressCare is a covered benefit.
