The Pillar Centre for Transformative Healthcare is located here in the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital.
The Pillar Centre for Transformative Healthcare officially launched in November 2018 with the opening of a unique, flexible, interdisciplinary educational space within a hospital setting. Ultimately, facilities for clinical research, genomics, bio-banking, inter-disciplinary team training, education and innovation programme facilities will be co-located at the Pillar.
The next phase of development will include state-of-the-art simulation facilities including a ‘wet lab’ and a device development space, which will focus on advanced postgraduate education and surgical skills training. These facilities will enable the development of training courses for healthcare professionals. They will also allow for engagement with industry to progress the development and deployment of new and innovative solutions within healthcare. It is anticipated that this phase of development will be completed by January 2021.
