Statement from Dr John Killeen, chairman, Saolta University Health Care Group re commitment in ‘Programme for a Partnership Government’ to replace Emergency Departmentat University Hospital Galway

We welcome the commitment to the construction of a new Emergency Department at University Hospital Galway reiterated in the “Programme for Partnership Government” published yesterday.

The building of this urgently needed Emergency Department remains the capital priority for the Saolta University Health Care Group.

We would like to thank all of those who have supported our efforts to replace the current facility, which is widely acknowledged as not fit for purpose, and to ask them for their continuing support into the future.

We look forward to working with all of our partners in this process, including HSE Estates, in bringing this important project to fruition in a timely and cost efficient manner.
