University Hospital Limerick New A&E And Renal Dialysis Development Completion
The project comprises the fit-out of an existing shell building along with ancillary infrastructural development to provide the largest Emergency Department in Ireland and a new Renal Dialysis Department at the University Hospital, Limerick.
The project was completed by Sisk Construction Ltd in carefully considered phases to ensure the surrounding tertiary hospital remained fully operational for the duration of the works, and included detailed co-ordination of all of the highly complex medical services required in modern-day ED facilities.
The Project Team are also conscious of the contribution architecture can make to calm and reduce anxiety, particularly in an Emergency Department, and we are very pleased to quote, Mary O’Shea, a patient on her first visit to the new unit;
“I love the new unit and it’s great to see the improvements. The best thing about it is the space, it was a real priority for us and we now have space in spades and have privacy when we need it. When I came in, the first thing I saw was the lovely blue winter sky outside of the huge windows and I’ve spent the afternoon watching the birds, they are just landing outside the window. Just in front of me is lovely wall art depicting trees, we all put in our suggestions for the design of the unit and I wanted trees. It’s great to have the unit for us into the future, it’s looking bright and will make a big difference, we‘re all looking forward to this new era.”
