Vital Equipment for Theatre & ICU
Friends of Wexford General Hospital on behalf of the people of Co. Wexford has purchased much needed equipment for use in Theatre and ICU at Wexford General Hospital.

The new system enables physicians at the hospital to have mobile Endoscopy imaging both in theatre and I.C.U. This is particularly helpful in situations where a patient may be bleeding and requires medical intervention under general anaesthesia. It also enables the anaesthetic team to provide emergency endoscopic interventions in theatre and I.C.U. Read More
