The five-year capital investment programme for community nursing units announced in 2016 provides the framework to allow for an enhanced programme to replace, upgrade and refurbish care facilities, as appropriate, at 90 locations. Significant work was undertaken to determine the optimum scheduling of projects within the phased provision of funding to achieve compliance and registration with the Health Information and Quality Authority.

The Health Service Executive is responsible for the delivery of health and personal social services, including healthcare infrastructure projects, and has advised that Design Stage 1 is nearing completion in respect of the development of Mountmellick Community Nursing Unit. The HSE is currently aiming to commence works for Phase 1 development of Mountmellick Community Nursing Unit in early 2020 for completion by the end of 2021.
