New Emergency Department Officially Opened at Wexford General Hospital

Autumn/Winter 2014

The new 7.5m Emergency Department at Wexford General Hospital was officially opened on 11th June by the Minister for Public Expenditure & Reform Mr Brendan Howlin TD.

The new Emergency Department (Ed) is providing a total of 17 treatment spaces and two resuscitation rooms for emergency patients. This significant expansion in capacity will lead to improved admission times for patients and will also provide a much enhanced environment for patients and the staff working there.

The existing Emergency Department facilities will then be refurbished for use as a temporary ward while other refurbishment/improvement work is ongoing in the Hospital. A second part of this overall 20 million project, which encompasses new Maternity Delivery Suits and third Operating Theatre, will be open for business in 2015
