Galway Bay FM Newsroom – Construction work on the new community nursing station in Tuam is currently underway.
The new 50-bed facility, which includes a heavily dependent housing unit, represents a € 17 million investment in Tuam and is intended to meet the needs of the city and North Galways.
The facility on Purcell / Stockwell Road will replace the existing Arus Mhuire building on Dublin Road, which HIQA has deemed unsuitable.
The project is part of the Tuam Health Campus, construction of which began three weeks ago on the Old Grove site.
The campus includes the ambulance base, primary care center, mental health day hospital, disability service unit, and community nursing.
Galway East TD Sean Canney says the investment will bring construction jobs initially and more than 200 people will be permanently employed on campus once the work is completed.
