Corporate information

Children’s Health Ireland (CHI) is one of seven hospital groups established as part of the acute health sector reform programme and is led by Chief Executive, Eilísh Hardiman.


CHI was established to govern and operate paediatric services in Dublin as a single service across our existing locations at Crumlin, Temple Street and Tallaght as we prepare for the transition to the new facilities at the two Paediatric Outpatient and Urgent Care Centres at Connolly and Tallaght Hospitals and the new children’s hospital on a campus shared with St James’s Hospital.  


The Children’s Hospital Programme will successfully merge these three hospitals into a new single organisation. It needs to transform general paediatric and emergency care in the greater Dublin area with the opening of the new Paediatric Outpatients and Urgent Care Services at Connolly and Tallaght Hospitals in 2019 and 2020 respectively, implement an integrated clinical network for paediatrics across the health system, move services into the new children’s hospital – the largest capital investment in the public system.

In line with the Government’s Digital First Public Service ICT Strategy, the new hospital is planned as the first ‘Digital Hospital’ in the system with the implementation of an Electronic Healthcare Record, as well as, other evidence based standards, such as, 100% single rooms.
