Building a business in healthcare

Beacon Medical Group was founded in 2002 by Michael and his childhood friends Professor Mark Redmond (Cardio Thoracic Surgeon) and John Delaney (Chartered Accountant) with the aim of advancing Prof. Redmond’s vision of developing state-of-the-art, gold standard medical facilities in Ireland.  There have been many twists and turns along the way, from winning Government Tenders to build more hospitals, to the tenders being cancelled after a change of Government, the banking crisis and other healthcare sector challenges.  Reflecting on the journey to this point, in a sector of the market which is notoriously challenging, Michael will share some of insights into what he has learnt along the way.
