North Tipperary TD Noel Coonan has warmly welcomed developments at Nenagh General Hospital with the signing of contracts for two new surgical suites.
Commenting on the project, Deputy Coonan said: “This anticipated development, which was included in the HSE’s National Plan, is excellent news for Nenagh and for all families throughout the constituency who avail of the crucial services at the facility. Nenagh Hospital continues to advance and progress and will excel in diagnostic and surgical procedures.”
Speaking to Thurles.Info this morning the local TD continued: “What is important right now is that the facilities are made fully available to the people of North Tipperary as soon as possible.
It is irrelevant under which Government the funding was provided as long as the project is prioritised and I will continue to exert my influence with my Fine Gael colleague Minister James Reilly. This project was first mooted when both Cllr Jim Casey and I were members of the HSE Mid-Western Health Board under Mr. John O’Brien. It was made an integral part of the five year plan at that stage. The wheels of administration grind slowly and we will continue to fight for local services,” concluded Deputy Coonan
