Saolta University Health Care Group (formally West/North West Hospitals Group) is one of six new hospital groups announced by the Minister for Health, Dr. James Reilly TD in May, 2013, as part of a re-organisation of public hospitals into more efficient and accountable hospital groups that will deliver improved outcomes for patients.

 
 
The Group's Academic Partner is NUI Galway.
 
By working in groups, hospital services will be provided by the hospitals in each group based on the evidence-based needs of their populations. Each group of hospitals will work together as single cohesive entities managed as one, to provide acute care for patients in their area, integrating with community and primary care. This will maximise the amount of care delivered locally, whilst ensuring complex care is safely provided in larger hospitals.
 
The objectives of the groups are to:
  • Achieve the highest standard of quality and uniformity in hospital care across the group;
  • Deliver cost effective hospital care in a timely and sustainable manner;
  • Encourage and support clinical and managerial leaders;
  • Ensure high standards of governance, both clinical and corporate and recruit and retain high quality nurses, NCHDs, consultants, allied health professionals and administrators in all our hospitals.
 
Saolta University Health Care Group has 1,770 beds and 7,620 staff and a budget of €600m.
