Partnership Creates First of its Kind Hospital/Physician JV for the Republic of Ireland (Chicago, IL) – Regent Surgical Health, an industry leading surgery center management and development company specializing in hospital/physician joint ventures, is proud to announce its first international partnership.   Regent has entered into a ten year agreement between Hermitage Medical Clinic, the physicians of Neurosurgery Ireland, and Chicago-based Accelitech to create Ireland’s only dedicated center for the diagnosis and treatment of neurosurgical disorders in the community hospital setting. A key component of this partnership is Ireland’s only Cyberknife Stereotactic Radiosurgery System, a collaborative partnership with physicians throughout the country. This partnership is the first physician/hospital joint venture of its kind ever introduced in the country. “This deal is a giant leap forward for neurosurgery services in Ireland, “says Michael McKevitt, Regent’s SVP of Business Development. “Together, we are creating a state of the art facility, complete with the latest advanced technology, for Ireland’s top neurosurgeons to treat their patients.” “We are proud of the fact that our Cyberknife technology was central to the vision of this partnership,” adds Accelitech Chief Development Officer, Scott Milligan. “Cancer patients will now have a non-invasive surgical option at a conveniently located, patient-focused facility.” Historically, Irish patients, and often their neurosurgeons, were required to travel to other countries to complete their treatments. “Regent is known for its ability to forge partnerships that improve the standard of care for the patient community, lower the cost of providing care, and align the interests of the various stakeholders for long term success,” adds Regent CEO Thomas Mallon. “We are proud of the fact that our reputation has caught the attention of the healthcare community beyond the US borders.” The new center is scheduled to open on the campus of the Hermitage Medical Clinic in Dublin, Ireland, in the Fall of 2012.
