Glenties Primary Care Centre, located in the town centre, represents a €1.7 million investment by the HSE in providing health care in the region.
It will feature a GP Practice with a range of HSE health professionals, including Public Health Nursing, Dentistry, Physiotherapy, Speech and Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Dietician, Addiction Service and Chiropody.
All of the HSE services at the Centre will be available to the population of the area including those attending other GP practices.
Dungloe Community Hospital is part of HSE Older Person Services.
The hospital has 35 beds including continuing-care beds, respite care beds, convalescent care beds and palliative care beds. Some €500,000 was spent on the new accommodation consisting of 4 single high dependency rooms with en-suite facilities, a patients’ dayroom, a new disabled WC and a hairdresser’s room.
An enclosed garden with soft-pour pathways was designed between the new day room and the new four-bedded extension; funding for the garden was provided by local fundraising and the Hospital Golden Jubilee Committee.
