An Irish-owned health care operator – providing managed services for the past 13 years – has opened new offices in Galway as part of a major expansion.

But now Communicare has expanded, opening new offices in Galway and Cork to meet the ever increasing demands in the healthcare sector for top quality staff and the company currently employs several hundred people.
