New owners for St. Joseph’s Hospital

A Sligo hospital that is frequented by many from Boyle is due to change ownership in the coming weeks.

The Belfast-based healthcare business, 3fivetwo Group, is to buy St. Joseph’s Hospital, formerly known as Garden Hill..

The group has agreed to take over St Joseph’s in Sligo, which has 19 beds and employs about 60 people.

St Joseph’s Hospital Sligo Ltd’s most recent accounts show KBC Bank appointed KPMG as share receiver in July 2014.

The 3fivetwo Group owns the Kingsbridge Private Hospital in south Belfast and a range of other businesses, including Origin Fertility Care.

St Joseph’s is to be re-branded as Kingsbridge Private Hospital Sligo, and all jobs will be secured.

 Mark Regan, 3fivetwo Group development director, said the purchase was good news for the company and for the north west of Ireland.

Roscommon native Mark Towey, chief executive of St Joseph’s, said the deal would provide “an opportunity to consolidate and expand”.
