• Development of the National Maternity Hospital.

      National Maternity Hospital (NMH) (National Maternity Hospital (NMH), 2003-11)
      The need for the development of the National Maternity Hospital is well documented. Following extensive consultations with the Department of Health and Children, through the late 1990's, the establishment of a Project Team to advance the development of the hospital was approved and the Project was included in the National Development Plan. The first task of the Project Team was to examine the future role and accommodation needs of the hospital within its designated catchment area, having regard to its relationship with other service providers. In this context a Development Brief was prepared and was finalised during the summer of 200I. The Brief was informed to a large extent by a comprehensive needs assessment exercise commissioned by the Eastern Regional Health Authority.
