Government approves funding to build the New Children's Hospital

In a joint statement Helen Shortt, CEO of Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin, Mona Baker, Temple Street Children’s University Hospital, and David Slevin, CEO of Tallaght Hospital; said;

“On behalf of the Boards and the staff of the three children’s hospitals we welcome the announcement today that the construction investment for the new children’s hospital and two OPD & Urgent Care Centres (planned for Connolly and Tallaght Hospitals) has been approved.  The Children’s Hospital Group and the National Paediatric Development Board have brought the project to this significant point bringing it to closer to seeing bricks laid at the site of the planned new children’s hospital. These facilities will be a big improvement for children, young people, families and staff. The design and the range of facilities that will be available under one roof will be exceptional.  The hospitals are looking forward to the opening of the new hospital and to seeing continuing improvements in clinical care and outcomes for the children and young people in our care.”
