    Hard hats and hard cash for children’s hospital services

    08 May 2017

    Government recently approved €1 billion in investment for the new children’s hospital at the St James’s Hospital, Dublin, campus and two paediatric outpatients and urgent care centres at Connolly and Tallaght Hospitals, Dublin. Pictured at an announcement marking the investment are Anthony Ianucci (10) and Minister for Health Simon Harris. Construction will start within weeks and the new children’s hospital is expected to be open by the end of 2021. The new centre at Connolly Hospital will be open by the end of 2018 and the centre at Tallaght in early 2019. The total capital cost for the delivery of the project at St James’s and the outpatient and urgent care centres is €1.07 billion, of which €1.004 billion is Exchequer-related, made up of €916 million Exchequer capital and €88 million Exchequer ICT capital. The St James’s site has proven controversial, with some groups campaigning for the children’s hospital to be built at the site of Connolly Hospital.
