We are delighted to announce that we have broken ground on the €68 million redevelopment of the National Rehabilitation Hospital in DunLaoghaire. An Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar and Minister for Health Simon Harris officially turned the sod at a ceremony held on the 23rd October 2017.
The new development will include the construction of a fit for purpose ward accommodation block comprising 120 single ensuite rooms with integrated therapy spaces, a new sports hall, hydrotherapy unit, links to the existing building which will ensure full integration between the new development and the existing hospital on the site, and significant campus infrastructure upgrades. On completion, the building will have a gross floor area of approximately 17,000 m2. The works will be carried out on a live healthcare campus, without interruption to the hospital operation.
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.
