Former Westmeath Psychiatric Hospital Could Have New Purpose

Refugee accommodation is one of the uses being considered.

The HSE says it remains open to finding an alternative use for a former Westmeath psychiatric hospital.

St. Loman's in Mullingar has been closed for a decade, and the Health Service says it's not compatible for the provision of modern healthcare services, due to its age and condition.

The future use of the site is yet to be determined, however St. Brigid's building, which is part of the complex, is being assessed for its suitability to house Ukrainian refugees.

The HSE says it's awaiting confirmation on whether that's a viable option.
