Boyle based Dail Deputy Frank Feighan says the new endoscopy unit currently under construction at Roscommon Hospital is moving ahead as planned.
When constructed, the endoscopy unit will be able to perform three times as many endoscopy procedures as are currently being carried out at the hospital.
The endoscopy unit is due to be fully operational by the end of 2015.
Deputy Feighan stated “I look forward to the completion of this 14,000 sq ft. unit which is at an advanced stage. This unit is set to become a diagnostic centre for the Western Region.”
There are two other flagship projects at the hospital, namely, a Rehab Unit and a Hospice Care Centre.
