National Rehabilitation Hospital 120 Bed Development Commenced On Site And Due For Completion In 2019.
Works commenced on site in August 2017 at the new 120 Bed project for the National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH) in Dun Laoghaire. John Paul Construction has been appointed as the main contractors, and the project is due for completion in November 2019.
The Taoiseach Mr Leo Varadkar and the Minister for Health Mr. Simon Harris were present the formal ‘ Breaking Ground’ event hosted by the NRH on site to mark the commencement of the building works.
An Taoiseach noted ‘the Government is determined to invest in the future of our health services….. and this breaking ground ceremony is a clear demonstration of our commitment’.
The Minster for Health noted that ’The Government recognises the high quality programmes which the NRH delivers. This new development will be a major enhancement to rehabilitation services in the country’.
The project is unique in that it is the first purpose designed rehabilitation facility in the country. The design was developed following intensive research in international best practice in rehabilitation, and represents the most current thinking in rehabilitation to enable the NRH to deliver services in a new and innovative environment specifically around patients’ needs. The current project is Phase 1 of the planned development at the NRH. Phases 2 and 3 will be completed as funding becomes available.
