Children’s Health Ireland (CHI) is leading on the clinical and operational transformation of acute paediatric healthcare and consists of hospitals at Crumlin, Temple Street and Tallaght. The three children’s hospitals and CHI’s Corporate Office transitioned from four separates, independently governed entities into one new single organisation effective from 1st January 2019 to govern and operate paediatric services in Dublin.
This new organisation will operate as a single service across the existing locations of Crumlin, Temple Street, Tallaght and the CHI Corporate Office before transitioning 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 the campus shared with St James’s Hospital.
The new children’s hospital will be at the centre of a new model of care with a new Paediatric Outpatient and Urgent Care Centre (POPD and UCC) and a new POPD and Emergency Care Unit (POPD & ECU) which will be central to the delivery of this new model of care. The POPD and UCC is based at Connolly Hospital on the North side of Dublin and opened July 31st 2019 and the POPD and ECU is based at Tallaght University Hospital on the South side of Dublin and opened on 15th November 2021. The addition of these new POPD, UCC & ECU, together with the opening of the new children’s hospital in 2025, will transform how healthcare is delivered to children in Ireland.
Help us to deliver on the Mission of Children’s Health Ireland, which is:
To promote and provide child-centred, research-led and learning informed healthcare, to the highest standards of safety and excellence, in partnership with each other, with children, young people and their families through a network of children’s services in Ireland.
