Clinical Vision

“Delivering the right care in the right place at the right time by the right staff.

A network of care with a new children's hospital at the epicentre will reach out through satellites and regional centres to deliver comprehensive paediatric care for Ireland’s children and young people.

The new hospital will be an exemplary facility that will provide a national hospital for children and young people requiring highly specialist care and treatment. As part of the new model of care for paediatric services, the new hospital is also being created in conjunction with two satellites centres at Tallaght Hospital and Connolly Hospital in Blanchardstown to provide local paediatric care. Offering no less than 39 paediatric specialties, care in the new hospital will be supported with state-of-the-art equipment, facilities and systems.

It will be the national hospital for the island of Ireland catering for children and young people in need of specialist and complex care. It will also be the local children’s hospital for Dublin, Wicklow, Kildare and parts of Meath.
