The Paediatric Outpatient and Urgent Care Centres at Tallaght University Hospital and in Connolly Hospital are major milestones in the new children’s hospital project, the most significant investment in healthcare ever undertaken by the State. It will have an impact on children, young people, their families and staff for future generations to come.
Key elements of the national paediatric model of care for the benefit of patients by bringing fast, convenient, quality care close to their home, as is clinically appropriate will be implemented in this new facility, services include Urgent Care, Outpatients, Imaging and a Dental department.
The 2 sites are fully integrated with the existing buildings while benefiting from separate entrances. The design reflects a state-of-the-art approach to providing a welcoming, child friendly acute care environment with integrated parent support areas and bright, colourful interiors.
COADY Architects are delighted to have collaborated successfully with HLM Architects for both projects.
