Limerick Regional to change name again

By Lloyd Mudiwa.

It has been proposed to change the name of the Mid-Western Regional Hospital, Dooradoyle — also known as the Limerick Regional Hospital — for the third time in five years.

This time, the name will be changed to the University Hospital Limerick, Irish Medical Times has learned.

According to the HSE, the change of title is to take account of the increasing prominence of its links with the University of Limerick (UL) and its new medical school and the recent appointment of academic professors as joint appointments between UL and the Executive.

The new title also acknowledges links with other universities, particularly University College Cork, and has the endorsement of all stakeholders within the Mid-Western Hospitals and UL, the HSE said.
