Beacon Hospital is a full service hospital which comprises 238,000 square feet over 9 floors. It has capacity for 214 beds.
The Hospital combines the best in Irish healthcare. As the showcase site for General Electric in Europe, it has the most up-to-date Radiology systems, including MRI, CT scanner with cardiac capabilities, CT Sim, and PET/CT. It also features Digital Radiology suites with advanced Mammography, Nuclear Medicine, and Ultrasound, as well as Angiography suites and lab with advanced single-plane and bi-plane systems and Flouroscopy.
Treatment facilities in Beacon include 8 operating theatres with dedicated rooms for Neurosurgery, Urology, Cardiac, General, Orthopaedic and Ophthalmic Surgery.
It has 2 Endoscopy suites, a state of the art Oncology day treatment centre, and therapeutic radiography with LINAC- linear accelerator.
Beacon has 14 Critical Care Beds individually capable of isolating any patient. This may seem a small point but is in fact very important – each patient has their own room, with glass front, so nurses see everything, but they are allowed a certain degree of privacy with their loved ones at this crucial time. It also helps minimise infection - a very pertinent issue in healthcare today.
As you might expect, Beacon offers highly advanced IT systems – which offer electronic medical record capabilities and remote access to clinical information for doctors – GPs and consultants. This means that any doctor can access their patients chart from a remote office and act accordingly.
The nursing philosophy in Beacon is a collaborative approach where compassion and care are delivered through touch, a kind act, through competent clinical interventions or through listening and seeking to understand the others experience. The nursing philosophy is relationship-based with therapeutic presence - where patients are treated primarily as individuals with individual needs.
Some of the services which Beacon offers include an Emergency Department, which is consultant-led. Patients can be referred by their GP when they have for example chest pain, and the hospital has the advantage of allowing direct referral to the wards when appropriate.
Our Neurosciences department includes a neurosurgeon and neurologists.
Other services in the hospital include our Cancer Centre and Women’s Centre.
