Children’s Health Ireland (CHI), Paediatric Outpatients & Urgent Care Centres at Connolly Hospital Blanchardstown and Tallaght University Hospital

A significant milestone for the new National Children’s Hospital development was reached in July 2019, with the opening of Children’s Health Ireland (CHI) at Connolly in Blanchardstown.

COADY Architects are delighted to have been part of this new, state of the art paediatric outpatient and urgent care facility which marks the first phase of the New Children’s Hospital with work progressing on Children’s Health Ireland at Tallaght University Hospital.

The 4,500 sqm Paediatric Outpatient and Urgent Care Centre in Connolly Hospital is a major milestone 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 4,300 sqm centre at Tallaght University Hospital is due for completion in 2020. 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.
