Cystic Fibrosis Facility Approved for Beaumont Hospital
Fianna Fáil TD for Dublin Bay North, Seán Haughey, has received confirmation from his party colleague and Minister for Health, Stephen Donnelly, that €22.2m in funding will be provided for 15 projects across Dublin Bay North under the Health Capital Plan 2021.
Beaumont Hospital will receive €21.56 million for various projects including the much anticipated 20 bed purpose built Cystic Fibrosis in patient facility, which has been granted planning permission.
Under the plan, which will be announced in the coming days, €700, 000 in funding will be provided for a new Emergency Department (ED) and reconfiguration of the existing ED at Beaumont Hospital, €1m will be invested to provide for the construction of a new 95 inpatient bed accommodation, and over €10m has been earmarked for the provision of Phase 2 Radiation Oncology facilities.
Other important local projects include the construction of a 30-bed purpose-built Psychiatry of Later Life Facility in North Dublin (site to be identified), the refurbishment and the expansion of the Kilbarrack Primary Care Centre, and €100,000 for the redevelopment of existing CRC Facilities in Clontarf.
Deputy Haughey commented, “I welcome this important health funding for Dublin Bay North. These projects are much needed, and I have actively campaigned for them as a local TD. The provision of a 20-bed purpose built Cystic Fibrosis in patient facility in Beaumont Hospital is particularly welcome and long overdue.
“The scale and variety of the projects being undertaken demonstrates Fianna Fáil’s commitment in Government to the health service of this country. I will continue to work with all stakeholders and the Department of Health to ensure that these facilities are in place as soon as possible and I will continue to push for further investment in the area,’’ concluded Deputy Haughey.
