An Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD, together with Minister for Health Simon Harris TD and members of the Youth Advisory Council, cast the foundation stone for the new children’s hospital. The children, current and former users of the children’s hospital services, and the Taoiseach embedded their hands into a mould which will be cast in cement and incorporated into the new hospital.
This milestone event follows the recent approval by Government of the investment required to enable the National Paediatric Hospital Development Board to award the construction contracts to BAM Ireland for the building of the main children’s hospital on the St James’s Hospital campus and the two Paediatric Outpatients and Urgent Care Centres on the Tallaght and Connolly Hospital campuses.
Theo Cullinane, CEO, BAM Ireland said: “Works are progressing well on the enabling works phase of construction and we are delighted to be involved in the main contract to build the flagship national project It is an honour to have the opportunity to contribute to the delivery of this project for the people of Ireland.”
