Roscommon University Hospital (RUH) and the Saolta University Health Care Group welcome the announcement of 20 new beds for the hospital.

This ambitious plan will develop adult acute inpatient beds over the course of the next seven years.

The new beds will be provided between 2029 and 2031.

“We welcome the commitment to enhancing infrastructure and capacity that we know we badly need in our region. This investment will help address the Urgent and Emergency Care pressures and support a regional balance of capacity provision,” said Ann Cosgrove, Interim CEO of the Saolta University Health Care Group.

Marie Doorly, RUH hospital manager also welcomed the announcement.

“These new beds will greatly benefit our local communities and we look forward to progressing these plans as quickly as possible,” she added.
