The HSE has this week approved significant additional funding for the completion of works at St Theresa’s Hospital in Clogheen.
Work is already underway on a €500,000 refurbishment of the building which was constructed in 1926.
A further €800,000 has been approved by the Health Service Executive for further expansion at the hospital.
Acting Director of Nursing Ann Walsh says local fundraising and donations has played a huge part in the current works.
The works should be completed by the end of next year.
Ann Walsh says it will be of benefit to patients and staff alike.
