Elective procedures will not be carried out at Kilcreene Hospital over the next two weeks.

According to the Health Service Executive (HSE): “Kilcreene Orthopaedic Hospital in Kilkenny, in accordance with long established annual practice during the seasonal period, will not provide elective (planned, non emergency) procedures with effect from Monday 19th December (2011). Traditionally, there is a low through-put of elective procedures during the holiday season – as people generally do not want to be in hospital over the seasonal period. Consequently, the hospital will be closed for the Christmas/New Year period and will re-open on 3rd January (2012).”
