IRELAND’S largest and most advanced Emergency Department has opened this Monday at University Hospital Limerick.
Pictured at the new Emergency Department were, Dr. Gareth Quin, Consultant in Emergency Medicine, Bridget Hoctor, Clinical Nurse Manager 3, Dr. Damien Ryan, Consultant in Emergency Medicine and Dr. Fergal Cummins, Consultant in Emergency Medicine.
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
