Thu, May 16, 2019

An independent report on the need for a new elective hospital in Galway will be completed and provided to the Minister for Health by the end of next month, it emerged this week.

The report, which was commissioned by the Saolta University Health Care Group, is expected to recommend the construction of a new 200-bed hospital on the grounds of Merlin Park.

Hospital management and consultant doctors met with Minister Simon Harris and Fine Gael TD for Galway West Hildegarde Naughton this week to discuss the project and the urgent need for additional bed capacity in Galway. Mr Harris was told that an independent report outlining the region’s current and future healthcare needs will be on his desk by the end of next month, according to Deputy Naughton.
