Wicklow District Hospital Partially Re-Opens For Covid-19 Treatment

The HSE has confirmed that 20 beds are to reopen at the District Hospital in Wicklow Town.

The facility closed in 2010 following a report from HIQA which outlined works that were needed at the site.

Sections of the hospital have already been reopened as a Covid 19 test centre and refurbishment work is ongoing to have the twenty beds brought online for Covid related activity.

Sinn Fein TD in Wicklow John Brady has welcomed the news, but has called for assurances that  the beds will remain open once the pandemic has passed.
