A HEALTHCARE SERVICES company based in Mayo is to expand its operations and create 150 new jobs in the next three years.

UK-based Northgate announced the expansion this morning.

The jobs will focus on the company’s core services including IT and transactional services, as well as document management services and an extension to the health services already in place.

Northgate already employs 200 people in a service that provides hearing screening for newborns.

Northgate’s Executive Director, Joe Bradley said that the jobs were good news.

“The creation of an additional 150 jobs is good news for the country and will provide a boost for the Irish economy over time, as well as enhancing Northgate’s contribution to providing key public sector services in Ireland.”

The announcement was made at the first conference of the West/North West Hospitals Group.

Also announced at the conference were plans to establish a new collaborative Centre for Learning and Innovation, the first of its kind Ireland.

The new centre will place an emphasis on simulated training and will include mocked up wards and theatres.
