The Mater Private Hospital

2 January 2008

“Howorth is proud to once again participate in the thriving and exciting Irish market. The Mater Private Hospital is a prestigious and highly-regarded private healthcare group; we see this as a union between two leading companies, both with a reputation for excellence.” Adrian Parkin, Howorth Air Technology Contracts Director.



As Ireland’s leading private healthcare group, The Mater Private Hospital prides itself on providing world-class medical facilities and health professionals, boasting some of the most technologically advanced facilities in Europe.

As part of a major €9.6million refurbishment of its Dublin hospital in 2008, The Mater Private Hospital contracted Howorth Air Technology Ltd to design and equip two operating theatres, both of which were to feature a Howorth Exflow Ultra-Clean Ventilation Canopy. Full mechanical and electrical installation was also carried out as part of this turnkey project.

The work marked a continuation in the relationship between Howorth and medical equipment, service and technology provider, Maquet, which installed its modular OR Variop modular system in the theatres. The system offers prefabricated colour-coated wall and ceiling units, and can be tailored to match operating rooms of all sizes and shapes. It virtually eliminates maintenance costs beyond routine cleaning, resulting in clinical benefits and significant life-cycle cost savings.

Howorth and Maquet have collaborated successfully on a number of recent projects, including the innovative “barn theatre” at Broadgreen Hospital and Cardiothoracic Centre, Liverpool.

The work carried out by Howorth Air Technology at The Mater Private Hospital helps to ensure that patients can be assured of the very highest level of care in all aspects of their treatment, and is evidence of the increasing respect Howorth is gaining in the Irish healthcare market.
