Affidea opens new ‘walk-in’ clinic

Affidea Group, the leading European provider of diagnostic imaging, outpatient and cancer care services, announces the opening of a new ExpressCare Clinic in Tallaght in Dublin for minor injuries and minor illnesses, after an investment of €2 million. This is the second Affidea ExpressCare Clinic to open in Ireland this year, with the other clinic operating in Cork, and this adds to its network of 246 centres across 16 countries.

The current investment into a new outpatient clinic for minor injuries and minor illnesses is part of an overall €20 million investment by the company in the Irish healthcare sector in the last three years. Affidea Ireland has created over 130 new jobs on the Irish healthcare market in the last 3 years and the opening of the centre will involve the creation of 10 new positions, with more to come as activity at the facility increases.

Our ambition is for Affidea to become the premier digital healthcare provider with the most extensive network of medical centres, powered by AI

Giuseppe Recchi

Welcoming the unveiling of the new Affidea ExpressCare Clinic and speaking about Affidea’s ambitious expansion strategy, Giuseppe Recchi, CEO of the Affidea Group said: “This is an important investment for Affidea and is part of our ambitious expansion plan into the outpatient sector, strengthening our position in the existing markets, by adding new medical capabilities which can allow us deliver a coordinated care for patients. The first ExpressCare centre in Cork has been a success and this clinic will significantly benefit the Irish healthcare sector by relieving the burden placed on Irish hospitals by large numbers presenting unnecessarily in A&E departments across the country.”

“Affidea’s investment into a new ExpressCare centre is part of our wider strategy to expand our portfolio of services, complementing our leading network of diagnostic and medical imaging services. We have added around 80 centres to our network within the last 12 months alone and our ambition is for Affidea to become the premier digital healthcare provider with the most extensive network of medical centres, powered by AI. The opening of our new centre in Tallaght is an important step in this journey and one which will benefit patients, PHIs and National Health Systems”.
