The HSE is conducting a review of Our Ladys Hospital in Cashel.
The expectation is that the Cashel facility will be used as a Community Care Centre and Day Hospital,
focussing on the needs of elderly patients.
The future role of the hospital has been in question despite a 12 million euro refurbishment.
But many believe that Our Ladys should be used as a step down facility to help ease the overcrowding crisis at South Tipp General.
Tipperary Independant Deputy Seamus Healy says the hospital should do what it was designed for.
