LONGFORD WESTMEATH FRIENDS OF MULLINGAR GENERAL HOSPITAL was set up in July 1990 for the purpose of raising the money to get a CAT Scanner for the Regional Hosptial in Mullingar. The campaign was successful, and in the intervening years the friends subsequently raised funds for an upgrade CAT scanner and number of smaller pieces of equipment for the Hospital.
This fundraising appeal is the biggest to date. The department of health have agreed to build a space to house the MRI and provide the staffing required to operate and maintain the machine should this campaign be successful.
Where your money goes
All money raised in this appeal will be used directly for the Regional Hospital Mullingar.
The Purchase of the MRI Scanner and anciilary equipment will cost €950,000.
The Department of Health have agreed to finance the building to accommodate the machine and provide the staffing and supports required to operate and maintain the machine.
The CAMPAIGN BALANCE is currently at €550,000 thanks to the continued efforts and generosity of the community.
