IRELAND’S largest and most advanced Emergency Department has opened this Monday at University Hospital Limerick.
UHL CEO Colette Cowan welcomed the first boy, paediatric patient to the new Emergency Department, Cathal O'Donoghue, 12, KIlmallock Co. Limerick.
A €24 million project (development and equipment costs), the ED spans 3,850 square metres of floor space, over three times the size of the old department. In 2016, UHL had the busiest ED in the country, with over 64,000 attendances. Picture: Alan Place
