Work starts at South Tyrone Hospital

Have your say

REFURBISHMENT work to upgrade the external façade of the main tower block at South Tyrone Hospital began recently.

The work, part of a £2.9 million investment, is scheduled to continue for a period of 20 months and includes new windows, replacement of the exterior facade with modern cladding and essential structural repairs.

There will be some disruption to offices/ward areas as work continues as well as fewer available car parking places.

This is the latest in a series of recent investments made by the Trust to improve facilities and services at South Tyrone Hospital.

A new state of the art decontamination facility at South Tyrone Hospital costing just under £500,000 opened in spring 2012 to support additional permanent endoscopy sessions and to help improve waiting times for patients.

The admission ward also underwent considerable refurbishment costing £63,000 as part of an investment to ensure an excellent patient experience in pleasant and comfortable surroundings.
