University Hospital Limerick Emergency Dept. & Haemodialysis Dept.
Back to Projects
The new Emergency Department together with the Haemodialysis Unit comprised of a new 2-storey building together with a new 2-storey underground carpark facility attached to the new Coronary Care Unit on the site of the University Hospital at Limerick. The project comprised the fit-out of an existing shell building along with ancillary infrastructural development to provide the largest Emergency Department in Ireland and a new Renal Dialysis Department at the University Hospital, Limerick.
The Emergency Unit included sections for paediatrics, x-ray, resuscitation, minor treatment and major treatment. The new unit included 29 standard treatment cubicles with 6 minor treatment cubicles and 3 major treatment cubicles. The unit also included 6 resuscitation bays. The project also included 3 sets of lifts for the public and staff use, and a fire evacuation lift. The main structural elements incorporated the requirements for a future 3-storey ward block above the existing building.
The new Haemodialysis unit comprised of 20 standard dialysis stations with a mixture of bed and chair positions, 4 isolation suites and 4 CAPD treatment spaces. It also houses the ancillary office and ancillary spaces required for this Department. The overall area of the project was approximately 6800m².
