Blackrock Clinic in Blackrock, Dublin was co-founded in 1984 by surgeons Joseph Sheehan, his brother Jimmy Sheehan, Maurice Neligan and Nuclear Medicine Specialist George Duffy as a private, high-tech hospital offering healthcare to private patients. Today it has contracts with all the main Irish health insurance companies as well as being available to private self paying patients.[1][2]

A teaching hospital, it is associated with both the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and University College Dublin.

In March 2008, the clinic announced a major, €100 million expansion over a five-year period, with the goal of doubling its capacity. Work was completed in spring 2014 and all accommodation is now private en suite.

Blackrock Clinic now has over 300 consultants registered on its Medical Society, representing over 40 medical specialties. The hospital has been awarded the Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation for over 10 years.[1][3]
