Tywyn Hospital in Gwynedd is to receive more than £5million funding for major improvements, Health Minister Mark Drakeford has announced.
The work will include the refurbishment of existing buildings, demolition of part of the hospital and building a new extension.
A new primary care resource centre will also provide patients with several health services in one place and a new 16-bed ward will be built on the site of the existing Dyfi ward. The new ward is designed to allow improvements in patient dignity, privacy and comfort.
– Mark Drakeford AM, Health Minister
These are hard times economically, and we have tough spending choices to make. However, investment in hospital services continues, and the £5m funding for improvements at Tywyn Hospital will bring great benefit to the community.
An increase in bed numbers and the integration of several services here will enable more people to be cared for closer to home in an environment which is fit for purpose.

A Gwynedd snack food company has confirmed it is to go ahead with plans to move two-thirds of its workforce to south Wales.
In a statement released this afternoon, the company says it has "no option by to relocate its operational functions."
Halo Foods considered a number of options relating to its manufacturing footprint, which also included the possibility of relocating its entire bar manufacturing operation to Eastern Europe. However, with assistance from the Welsh Government, it has been able to secure its future in Newport, South Wales where a new 25 year lease has been agreed, and a significant investment will be made to upgrade the facility.
– Robin Williams, Halo Foods managing director
We have experienced, loyal and dedicated people in Tywyn and it is very unfortunate that we can no longer retain a manufacturing operation there. There are alternative roles available for all staff at other sites and a support package will be offered to those who wish to relocate.
The move will start in November. Halo says they are now focusing on supporting staff effects and has set up a 'support hub' in Tywyn which will remain in place until March.
