A teaching hospital, it maintains links with NUI Galway, LYIT and the Royal College of Surgeons. The General Manager is Sean Murphy, the Director of Nursing is Dr. Anne Flood and the Clinical Director is Dr. Paul O'Connor.LUH has been affected by the problems faced by Ireland's crumbling Health Service, extending back to the Fianna Fáil–Progressive Democrat governments of Bertie Ahern and Mary Harney to the present Fine Gael–Labour coalition. A common feature is the treatment of patients on trolleys due to chronic bed shortages. The hospital was closed for nine months when it was destroyed by flooding in July 2013 which caused €40 million worth of damage. The hospital was closed once again due to flooding following heavy rainfall a year later, in August 2014.
