Southern Health Board annual report 2000
Southern Health Board (SHB)
I am proud to introduce the annual report which details many new, exciting developments and achievements of the Southern Health Board during the last year. The people of Cork and Kerry are experiencing major improvements in health care and social services as a result of our booming economy and increased spending on health care. Improvements in planning and developing services also contributed greatly to the provision of their health and social services. Great strides have been made in our capital projects throughout 2000 as a result of funding received under the National Development Plan. The National Development Plan is the biggest amount of funding granted for capital projects in the history of the State. Plans are well underway to build a new community hospital in Dingle, an extended Radiotherapy Department and Accident and Emergency Department and a new Maternity Unit at Cork University Hospital. Over 1,500 new staff have taken up positions with the Board and I wish them all well in delivering quality healthcare to our population. I wish to thank my fellow Board members for their continued support and would also like to thank the Corporate Management Team whose expertise and experience contributes so much to the success of the Board. As always, I would like to extend a special note of thanks to our partners in the voluntary sector for their dedication and co- operation throughout the year. Throughout my second year of chairmanship of the Southern Health Board I have had the pleasure of meeting many more of our growing staff, and their commitment and enthusiasm has continued to impress me. I look forward to the challenges that the coming year will bring and wish everyone continued success in working towards improving the health and quality of life of our communities. Michael Cahill
