Imminent opening for Killeshandra Health Centre

The new centre is set to include a range of new facilities.

The Killeshandra Primary Care Centre is currently in the final stage of completion and is scheduled to open this month.

The HSE confirmed the Primary Care Team Services that will be provided at the Centre include Public Health Nursing, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech & Language Therapy, Dietetics, Social Work and Psychology. They also state that additional HSE services will be provided at the Centre on a phased basis.

Cavan/Monaghan Fianna Fáil TD Brendan Smith has welcomed confirmation from the HSE.

“I have long advocated for modern and adequate primary care facilities for Killeshandra which would also enable an expansion in the delivery of health services locally. Dr Joan Ahern as GP first highlighted the need for a new health centre and I am glad that a new purpose built building has been provided in the town,” says Deputy Smith.

“The very substantial multi million euro investment by government in this new state of the art facility will benefit patients and will provide appropriate facilities in a modern setting for all the personnel delivering health services to the local community.”

Deputy Smith outlined his late brother Councillor Sean Smith “had worked along with the local community in focusing on the need for a new health centre for the area and I was very glad to strongly support those efforts”, stated Brendan Smith TD.”
