Rehab Unit design to go to tender
The design contract for the new Rehab unit being built at Roscommon Hospital will go out to tender in April.
Mid West Radio News report that Roscommon Fine Gael Senator Frank Feighan says the new unit will operate as a satellite unit to the National Rehabilitation Hospital in Dun Laoghaire.
The 10-bed stand alone unit in Roscommon will relieve pressure and waiting times at the Dun Laoghaire facility, and will allow patients in the West of Ireland to be treated closer to home.
Senator Feighan said that representatives from Rehab in Dun Laoghaire met with Roscommon Hospital management recently to progress the €7.85m unit planned for Roscommon.
