Following years of fundraising and campaigning, St Luke’s Hospital Carlow/Kilkenny is delighted that their new MRI scanner has been delivered onsite.
The MRI arrived today, Friday, 12th November. It’s exciting news for staff and patients of the hospital.
According to Hospital Manager, Anne Slattery: “This is a really positive day for staff and patients of the hospital. I’m also delighted for the people of Kilkenny and Carlow. Their generosity has made today possible. I’m also incredibly grateful to The Friends of St Luke’s Hospital. Without their efforts raising an amazing €250,000 today wouldn’t be happening.”
It’s expected that the MRI will be fully functional by mid-December.
