Midlands Regional Hospital, Tullamore

Midland Regional Hospital Tullamore is asking for the public’s co-operation with the implementation of temporary visiting restrictions at the hospital.

The temporary restrictions have been introduced to allow the hospital to manage a small number of cases of flu, confined to one ward, at the hospital.

Visitor restrictions will be in place while the situation persists, with visits restricted to one family member per patient. The restrictions will be reviewed on a daily basis.
