The Design team for the €8 million Medical Rehabilitation Unit being planned at Roscommon Hospital is set to be appointed very shortly, according to Fine Gael Senator Frank Feighan.
The Senator says that the announcement of the successful design team for the 20-bed capital project is now imminent.
The tender process to select a project design team commenced in August 2017 and prospective contractors sent their tenders back on December 27th last. Unfortunately, he says, there appeared to be unwelcome delays in moving this process along; however, he raised the matter directly with Junior Health Minister Jim Daly in June and, since then, the HSE has refocussed its efforts in getting the team in place.
The facility based at Roscommon University Hospital will operate as a satellite centre under the auspices of the National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH) in Dun Laoghaire.
