Construction plans for an MRI scanner and a 96-bed ward extension at Wexford General Hospital have been confirmed.
It comes after the people of County Wexford raised €250,000 for the MRI fundraising campaign.
The plans are a part of the 2022 Capital Plan and it's hoped construction will begin before the end of 2023.
Wexford TD and Minister James Browne says:
"Everyone across County Wexford knows the importance of the work conducted by all the healthcare workers at Wexford General Hospital. I have been raising the business case related to the permanent MRI scanner and ward extension at the highest levels of Government. I’m absolutely delighted to confirm that plans for the further development of Wexford General Hospital are progressing well."
“The procurement of a design team to construct a 96 bed ward extension is currently underway, with building design due to get underway in the third quarter of 2022."
“The people of County Wexford gave their full support for the MRI fundraising campaign, which raised €250,000. I’m glad that plans for the new permanent MRI scanner and a major ward extension are well underway”.
