The Ideal Site – Connolly

The Rotunda move must be heralded as a huge game-changer both for Connolly Hospital and for the NPH.  With 145 acres on the M50 central spine of the Greater Dublin Area(GDA), and with the populations of Swords and Blanchardstown each expected to increase to >100,000  over the next decade, the NPH at the Connolly campus  would be critically placed to serve the Secondary Care needs of the children of the GDA and the Tertiary Care needs of the children of Ireland.
Beaumont hospital, we understand, looks forward to moving neurosurgery and other surgical specialties to the Connolly campus. The addition of a helipad will allow a Level One Trauma Centre for the country- for both adult and children- to develop.  Access, parking, environment , expansion space, low planning risk, green parkland- with peripheral residental areas at some remove- make this an ideal site to welcome both our secondary and tertiary care patients.  Blanchardstown Shopping Centre and  the Central Biotechnology Science park are close by.

Now is the time to carefully plan the future lay out and interconnectedness of Clinical, Educational and Research facilities on this 21st century campus.
