The Religious Order involved in the sale of the Mount Carmel Nursing Home in Roscrea to the HSE says they are pleased that the HSE Capital Plan provides for the long-term continuation of care at Mount Carmel. The Sisters of Marie Madeleine Postel says the sale remains subject to due diligence but expects that it will progress without delay.
Mount Carmel consists of the nursing home, independent living, and a new Convent, which will be vacated in a timeline agreed with the HSE. In due course, the Convent area is convertible into care facilities which is expected to add to the overall care provision for older persons.
Mount Carmel is an integrated care facility and the addition of care provision within the Convent and within the, to be renovated Dean Maxwell Home provides for improved and expanded elder care provision in the area according to a statement issued by the Order.
The Sisters of Marie Madeleine Postel say they are pleased that their care centre will remain as a not-for-profit care facility and are happy to be commencing the journey of transfer of ownership to the HSE. The Sisters have also thanked Deputy Michael Lowry for his assistance.
