High quality in-patient and out-patient public rehabilitation service
This provides high-intensity rehabilitation
for adults of all ages with physical and neurological conditions, based in a sensitively designed modern hospital building. This will enable patients to leave acute hospitals as quickly as possible, or avoid admission to acute hospital entirely if we can safely meet their needs. In line with ‘home ﬁrst’ principles, we will also support local patients who go straight home from acute hospital, or admit them for in-patient rehabilitation if the need arises.
RHD will continue to focus on the areas it does so well, rehabilitating both adults and older persons in a key range rehabilitation specialisms, including neuro-disability, ortho-geriatric rehabilitation and stroke services.
HSE Primary Care Centre including GP and Diagnostic Services
The Primary Care Centre will be designed to reduce pressure on acute hospital services, including chronic disease management clinics, GPs, diagnostics and primary care teams
for meeting the physical and mental health needs of patients of all ages.
Supported Independent Living
In partnership with RHD Housing, we want to provide alternatives to nursing home admission. With the Hospital alongside, oﬀering access to our teams and the latest technologies, the Hospital can help to enable local people to live in their own community, or in supported housing on the campus, with input from round-the-clock campus-based care services where required.
Purpose-built Long Term Residential Care
When community living is no longer feasible, we will provide quality residential-care in a purpose-built facility, fully meeting HIQA standards. Residents may be admitted from the community or any of our services.
Beautifully landscaped grounds
A key feature of the Royal Hospital Donnybrook is the beautiful open areas, which are so important in providing vital healing space in a city-based campus.
We will maintain a focus on the grounds and landscaping, to create a beautiful, restorative environment for the mutual beneﬁt of patients, residents and the local community.
Health Research and Education Activities
Facilities are important but people are our most important resource. Support for Education and Research will be central to all activities, with continuous medical, nursing, and health and social care education.
