The new children’s hospital is the largest, most complex and significant capital investment project ever undertaken in healthcare in Ireland. It is the catalyst that will enhance how acute health services are delivered and will result in better clinical outcomes for children and young people.
It will bring together into one entity the three existing children’s hospitals; Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin, Temple Street Children’s University Hospital, and the National Children's Hospital at Tallaght Hospital.
It will be tri-located on one campus with St James’s Hospital and a planned maternity hospital. This tri-location model of service delivery is being undertaken to ensure the best outcomes for our children and young people, for mothers and for infants.
The new children’s hospital will be a world-class facility providing secondary paediatric services for the greater Dublin area and specialist services for the country as a whole.
It will be an academic health sciences hospital that values world-class research, education and innovation, which in turn will drive excellence in clinical care.
