Submission from Our Lady’s Hospital for Sick Children to Taskforce on NPH Location, 3rd March 2006 (p10) states-
“The footprint of the building must be sufficiently large to accommodate critical adjacencies. For example: A “core” surgical floor must accommodate Theatres (14); ICU spaces 54; and
radiology with sufficient (20%) room for expansion.
The design of this floor is especially critical and it
should link to the Neonatal ICU in the adjacent Obstetric hospital”.
NCHA asks ” Will the 2015 NPH plan deliver these critical adjacencies?”
