Diagnostic healthcare provider Affidea, which was previously known as Euromedic, is to create 100 jobs over the next 18 months as part of a new €15 million investment.

The company said the new positions will be a mix of clinical and administrative roles. It currently employs over 135 full-time staff.

Affidea, which announced its rebrand on Thursday, entered the Irish market in March 2007 with the acquisition of MRI Ireland.

It has diagnostic centres in Dublin, Cork, Naas and Kilkenny. The company also provides MRI services in Sligo General Hospital and the Ulster Independent Clinic in Belfast.

The company acquired Vista Medical Imaging in Naas, Co Kildare for an undisclosed sum in May bringing its total investment in Ireland to date to €55 million.

“The creation of over 100 new jobs means that our current and new clinics will be able to serve a greater number of patients, quickly, professionally and to the highest of standards,” said chief executive Tom Finn.

Affidea Ireland also said on Thursday it intends to provide gamma knife treatment to patients on the island of Ireland.
