Contact Details & Working Hours


Beacon Hospital is located in Beacon Medical Campus in Sandyford, Dublin 18. We provide world-class acute and day care services. These include orthopaedic surgery, heart surgery, neurosurgery, general surgery, comprehensive cancer care (medical oncology and radiation oncology) , and general and emergency medicine services. The hospital, which opened in October 2006, has 183 beds, 8 operating theatres over 600 staff and 200 privileged consultants, and was designed to provide the highest standards of specialised patient care and to enhance recovery. Beacon Hospital prides itself on its comprehensive infection prevention control and surveillance programme, highlighting the hospital’s commitment to being the highest-quality and safest provider of medical and surgical care.

The Beacon Centre for Orthopaedics comprises Ireland’s largest independent Orthopaedic Group Practice, where our thirteen Physicians (surgeons and Rheumatologist) cover all aspect of Orthopaedic care in one unit.

The Beacon Cancer Centre offers patients the latest advances in cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis and treatment, with an unparalleled range of treatment options, including diagnostic testing, surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy in one convenient location. The Beacon Women’s Centre, which encompasses the full spectrum of women’s gynaecological care, utilises minimally invasive procedures whenever possible. The Beacon Breast Care Centre also provides same-day mammography results and treatment in a warm, comforting environment.

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.

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 Hospital offer 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.

Beacon has satellite locations in Wexford, Mullingar and Drogheda. The benefit for patients is that they can access certain specialties locally, thereby minimising travel and any inconvenience. If a procedure is required this is carried out in Sandyford, and resulting follow up takes place back in their own community.
