A private hospital group which includes a facility in Sligo has been sold in what has been described an ‘undisclosed sum’.

Kingsbridge Healthcare Group, based in south Belfast, said it had secured major investment from private equity firm Exponent.

The Sligo town facility, located at Garden Hill is one of four hospitals and eleven clinics under the Kingsbridge umbrella with others located in Belfast and Derry.
