HistoryEdit

The site occupied by the hospital was originally part of the Kilcreene House Estate, the home of the Evans baronets. After the house had been demolished, a modern medical facility was built and opened as Lourdes Orthopaedic Hospital in 1959.[2] In March 2019 the Health Service Executive announced that it would transfer orthopaedic services from the hospital, by then known as Kilcreene Orthopaedic Hospital, to the University Hospital Waterford.[3]

ServicesEdit

The hospital provides 50 in-patient beds.[4]
