We are delighted to announce that work has now commenced on building Phase One of the New Hospital Development on our campus at Rochestown Avenue, Dún Laoghaire.

The initial stage of this project involved the design phase led by O’Connell Mahon Architects, and the EU tendering process for the Building Contractor was subsequently completed. Contracts were signed with the successful Tenderer, John Paul Construction on 28th August 2017 – works began immediately.

Phase One of the development will include a fit for purpose ward accommodation block (120 single ensuite rooms) with integrated therapy spaces, a new Sports Hall; Hydrotherapy Unit, a Temporary Concourse as well as clinical and ancillary spaces.  In addition, links to the existing building will ensure full integration between the new development and the existing hospital on the site.

What will this mean for the patients? The project is unique in that it will be the first purpose-built rehabilitation facility to be built in Ireland. All ward accommodation at the NRH will comprise new purpose designed single ensuite bedrooms with integrated rehabilitation-specific treatment spaces.  The redevelopment will enhance the environment for our patients and contribute towards achieving optimum outcomes from their Rehabilitation Programme.  It will enable staff to deliver services in a new and innovative environment designed specifically around patients’ needs.
