Western Health and Social Care Trust in the UK will open a new £276m hospital in Enniskillen, Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, on 21 June 2012, marking the closure of the Erne Hospital.
Built on the 52-acre site, the new South West Acute Hospital will be one of Northern Ireland's most modern and technologically advanced hospitals and will offer every patient an individual room.
The facility will serve patients from Fermanagh and south Tyrone regions and beyond as well as train medical students from Queen's University Belfast.
Western Health and Social Care Trust chief executive Elaine Way was quoted by Belfast News Letter as saying that the new south west hospital is one of the most modern facilities in the whole of Europe.
"Not only is it technologically up to date, but it also has 100% single rooms so that our patients can enjoy privacy," Way added.
"We are very excited at the fact that this hospital will serve the population of Tyrone and Fermanagh and beyond over the next 50 to 60 years."
There will no admissions to the Erne Hospital from 21 June, according to the Trust.
Western Health and Social Care Trust deputy chief executive Joe Lusby said that patients will no longer be wheeled in and out of theatre through public corridors as seen in some other hospitals.
"Northern Ireland now has a new acute hospital in the south west, built to the highest standards - on time and within budget," Lusby added.
