Plans to be lodged for new Community Nursing Unit in Clifden over next fortnight
The HSE is to lodge long-awaited plans for a new Community Nursing Unit in Clifden over the next fortnight.
The new build will replace the existing St. Anne’s Community Nursing Unit and Clifden District Hospital.
It’ll be a two-storey rectangular courtyard building with 40 bed spaces, that will offer a mix of dementia, short-stay and long-stay accommodation.
As part of the development, the existing St Anne’s will be reconfigured to provide admin areas, resident support areas, and a Day Hospital.
Local Councillor Eileen Mannion hopes the new build will address ongoing operational issues due to staffing difficulties.
