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.

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.
