Senator Maura Hopkins has welcomed the opening of the new Endoscopy unit at Roscommon Hospital.
The €6m new facility is opening on a phased basis and when in full operation 30 procedures a day will be completed.
Senator Hopkins said, “As a councillor and since elected to the Seanad I have been liaising with the Minister for Health Simon Harris TD, The HSE and the Department of Health to ensure this development was completed in a timely manner.”
“The Hospital has been accredited by JAG to carry out endoscopies and the service will cater for patients across the region. This investment and increase in services is a very positive step in providing important health services for our region. I will continue to advocate for increased health services across Roscommon Galway.”
Senator Hopkins concluded, “I have spoken with Minister for Health, Simon Harris and he has agreed to perform the official opening of the new Endoscopy Unit in the coming weeks.”
