|Publisher: ||Southern Health Board (SHB)|
|Issue Date: ||2000 |
|Description: ||I am proud to introduce the annual report which
details many new, exciting developments and
achievements of the Southern Health Board during
the last year.
The people of Cork and Kerry are experiencing major
improvements in health care and social services as a
result of our booming economy and increased
spending on health care. Improvements in planning
and developing services also contributed greatly to the
provision of their health and social services.
Great strides have been made in our capital projects
throughout 2000 as a result of funding received
under the National Development Plan. The National
Development Plan is the biggest amount of funding
granted for capital projects in the history of the State.
Plans are well underway to build a new community
hospital in Dingle, an extended Radiotherapy
Department and Accident and Emergency Department
and a new Maternity Unit at Cork University Hospital.
Over 1,500 new staff have taken up positions with the
Board and I wish them all well in delivering quality
healthcare to our population.
I wish to thank my fellow Board members for their
continued support and would also like to thank the
Corporate Management Team whose expertise and
experience contributes so much to the success of the
As always, I would like to extend a special note of
thanks to our partners in the voluntary sector for their
dedication and co- operation throughout the year.
Throughout my second year of chairmanship of the
Southern Health Board I have had the pleasure of
meeting many more of our growing staff, and their
commitment and enthusiasm has continued to impress
I look forward to the challenges that the coming year
will bring and wish everyone continued success in
working towards improving the health and quality of
life of our communities.
