New Emergency Department Officially Opened at Wexford General Hospital
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
