Delivering Ireland's New Children's Hospital

“The decision to build the New Children’s Hospital and its satellite centre to provide secondary general paediatric care to the Greater Dublin area and specialist paediatric care to the whole country is a unique opportunity to radically improve the delivery of paediatric care, the experience of children and their families and the working life and experience of paediatric staff.”

“Co-location with St James’ Hospital provides access to the greatest breadth and depth of subspecialties to optimally support the New Children’s Hospital. There is an internationally recognised research intensive culture and infrastructure at St.James’ Hospital that best matches and supports the research and innovation ambitions of the New Children’s Hospital. This is a critical element of the future vision for paediatrics in Ireland. The proposed campus capability for education of clinical undergraduates and postgraduates will be unmatched in the Irish healthcare system and provides an unrivalled opportunity for leading clinical research.

Ultimately, tri-location of the New Children’s Hospital with St James’s Hospital and the proposed re-development of the Coombe Women and Infant’s Hospital will provide the best possible modern environment for the delivery of excellent clinical care for sickest children and high-risk mothers.”
