New Hospital Project

August 2017

And We Are Off….

We are delighted to announce that work has now commenced on building Phase One of the New NRH Development on the campus of the existing National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH), Rochestown Avenue, Dún Laoghaire.

The NRH Foundation are working in partnership with the NRH and HSE on the construction of this life changing development which will have a huge impact on the lives and rehabilitation journeys of the patients, both adults and children, in the NRH.

The NRH Foundation is truly thankful to all those who have fundraised for and donated to this New Hospital Project to date and have helped make this dream a reality.

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 – work began promptly following this.

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, Paediatric Family Centred Rehabilitation Unit, a Temporary Concourse as well as Clinical & 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 specialist rehabilitation facility to be built in Ireland.  All ward accommodation at the NRH will comprise of new purpose designed single ensuite bedrooms with integrated rehabilitation-specific treatment spaces.  The redevelopment will enhance the environment for the patients of the NRH and contribute towards achieving optimum outcomes for their rehabilitation journey.  It will enable staff to deliver services in a new and innovative environment designed specifically around patients’ needs.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?  In preparation for the move into the new facility, the NRH Foundation has commenced fundraising to support the equipping of this new high spec facility.  We have been supplied with lists of vital equipment needed by the different Programmes and Wards in the NRH.  We would not be able to provide this vital support without the help of your donations, fundraising, sponsored events and philanthropic gifts.  Contact us at fundraising@NRH.ie if you would like to fundraise for the New NRH Hospital Project or visit www.idonate.ie/NRHNewHospital to donate to the New Hospital Project Fund.
