New Emergency Department in University Hospital Limerick

Posted on May 29, 2017 by Alan Kelly

I am delighted that the new Emergency Department in University Hospital Limerick has opened ahead of schedule.  I fully supported CEO Collette Cowan when she made the decision to open the department today, despite there been problems with funding the department for part of 2017.  It is hugely important that the new emergency department opened as soon as possible as the previous situation was unsustainable for both patients, their families and staff.

The new Emergency Department is three-and-a-half times the size of the current one, and is state-of-the-art when it comes to design and use of technology and meets patient safety and privacy requirements, including a designated waiting are for pediatric patients.  The total cost of the project is €24 million.
