National Rehabilitation Hospital in Dun Laoghaire secures additional €15 million funding for redevelopment.
Minister Varadkar confirmed yesterday (Tuesday 11th August) that a further €15 million has been allocated for the redevelopment of the National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH) in Rochestown Avenue, Dun Laoghaire. This allocation will now enable the Hospital and the HSE to proceed with a new 120 bed building on the Dun Laoghaire campus.
The National Rehabilitation Hospital provides complex specialist rehabilitation services to patients across the country.
Welcoming this additional allocation Minister Varadkar said, ‘the NRH is an important health facility providing a significant service. The additional funds allocated will allow for a large redevelopment of the hospital.’
Those patients attending the NRH often require complex specialist rehabilitation with this in mind the new 120 bed facility will be purpose built to accommodate the needs of these patients. The facility will include integrated therapy spaces, hydrotherapy and sports facilities on the NRH Campus.
Minister Varadkar and Minister Lynch have visited the hospital with local representatives Mary Mitchell O’Connor TD & Eamon Gilmore TD recently to meet the staff and see the great work taking place there.
The Hospital recently secured planning permission from An Bord Pleanála for the new development. This increased exchequer allocation in addition to the NRH’s contribution will enable the HSE and the hospital to now proceed with the work and build the new 120 bed facility.
