Work at the new primary care campus being developed at Mill Island in Fermoy by UHPC is well underway with works at the site expected to be completed by the end of 2021.

Following this, the HSE will carry out its specialist fit out, equipping and commissioning of its areas within the centre.

Building works on the site were to commence in February of 2019 but the €10 million project was delayed due to a planning permission objection.

120 jobs are expected to be created through the primary care facility at the historical Mill Island site in the town.

In a statement issued to The Avondhu in 2019 by, Mr Michael Hanley of the Fermoy Enterprise Board described the new development as ‘a perfect marriage of state and history’.

Mr Hanley expressed the potential benefits that the new primary care facility could bring to Fermoy including more customers and clientele, kick starting private house building, support for local businesses and making a contribution to the case for the development of other commercial businesses currently missing from the town.
