Athlone Primary Care Centre scoops major award

The X-ray department at the Primary Care Centre in Clonbrusk in Athlone has, for the first time, been awarded the Radiography Department of the Year award.

Nominated by a member of the public, Athlone won with a combination of results from a public and online votes and site visits.

The winner was announced this weekend at a ceremony in Cork and announced by the Minister for Health, Simon Harris.


Mayor of Athlone Aengus O’Rourke welcomed the award, saying it was recognition of the hard work and dedication of the staff, their patients and management at the Primary Care Centre.
