THE planning application for the €19m redevelopment of St Camillus’ Hospital in Limerick city is to be lodged on Monday.

The HSE revealed detailed drawings and architects impressions of the new build at the Shelbourne Road facility in August following extensive design and research works. 

The project with an indicated cost of €18.96million will provide 63 single and six twin rooms all of which will be used to provide the best standard of environment for long stay nursing home care. 

The beds will replace the existing long stay units which is necessary to achieve regulatory and best practice requirements by the end of 2021. 

Confirming the position HSE Mid West Chief Officer Bernard Gloster said “all of our plans and milestones to date for this project have been and continue to be met.  Hopefully following the planning process we will be able to tender early for construction and proceed to works on this critical facility as part of the overall Community Health service infrastructure in Limerick and the Mid-West”.
