Feighan welcomes visit of Health Minister next month to officially open new €6m Endoscopy Unit at Roscommon Hospital
Senator Frank Feighan has welcomed the confirmation that Health Minister Simon Harris will officially open the new €6m Endoscopy Unit at Roscommon Hospital on Thursday, September 8th.
“I’m delighted that Minister Harris has accepted my invitation to formally open the Endoscopy Unit, which is already operational.
“This 14,000 square foot state-of-the-art unit will become a diagnostic centre for the whole Western region.
“It is facilitating a range of scope procedures for patients, including colonoscopies, and the new unit will perform three times as many endoscopy procedures at the hospital than previously.
“This multi-million euro investment ensures that the number of patients treated in Roscommon will continue to rise and add substantially to the general increase in activity at the hospital.
“I gave a commitment to secure significant investment for Roscommon Hospital and the Endoscopy Suite is part of a €20m investment earmarked for the hospital.”
