Nursing home plans to be lodged

Wednesday, 7th November, 2018 4:49pm

Planning permission for the redevelopment of St Patrick’s Community Hospital in Fermoy is expected to be lodged shortly.

That’s according to Cork East Fine Gael TD, and Minister of State at the Department of Justice, David Stanton who said that the project for the community nursing home is currently at detailed design stage and the HSE has confirmed that planning documents are currently being prepared in tandem with the design process.

It’s anticipated that a planning application will be made to Cork County Council by the end of the month, Minister Stanton was told.

Then provided the application is successful, and subject to the availability of capital funding, the project will be put out to tender.

The HSE envisages, he said, that associated project works could begin as early as the third quarter of 2019 with an anticipated completion date of approximately twelve months once the works have commenced.

He said: “St. Patrick’s Community Hospital was allocated €2 million under the HSE’s Capital Programme which was announced in January 2016. The programme provides for the replacement and refurbishment of 90 public nursing homes across the country over the next five years.

“Plans for St Patrick’s Community Hospital will provide better facilities for 72 residents by refurbishing and extending the existing community nursing home to satisfy the necessary physical environment standards and to better serve the needs of the people living there.”
