The publication of a site notice indicating the intention for the HSE to seek planning permission to develop Midleton Community Hospital has been welcomed by Cork East Fine Gael TD and Minister of State at the Department of Justice & Equality, David Stanton. The proposed plans are for a 50 bed, two storey community nursing and residential care unit which will modernise the current facility.
“I am very pleased that a planning permission is soon to be lodged with Cork County Council for this much anticipated development at Midleton Hospital. In addition to the 50 en suite bedrooms, there are also plans to develop dining rooms, kitchenettes, day rooms and treatment rooms with other communal spaces such as an indoor courtyard, quiet rooms, activity rooms, sun rooms and a hairdressing salon.
“Staff facilities will also be modernised including improvements to accommodation and office spaces as will visitor facilities which will include a family overnight room. The outdoor aspect of the hospital will also be landscaped”, said Minister Stanton.
