Good intentions pave way for multi-million health projects

The former Grove Hospital in Tuam is earmarked for a major redevelopment.

THE HSE has confirmed it intends to move ahead with the construction of two major multi-million-euro projects in Tuam, but it cannot give an absolute guarantee that they will get the €25 million needed to build them.

It’s been confirmed that the estimated cost of a new Mental Health Campus and Early Intervention service at the former Grove hospital site in Tuam will be €13 million and the new 50-bed residential care unit to replace Aras Mhuire will cost a further €19 million (7 million being donated).

However, Cllr Donagh Killilea says the projects will be competing for funds with others around the country, including the National Children's Hospital.
