A 20 bed inpatient Cystic Fibrosis ward and 10 bed Cystic Fibrosis day-ward, provided within the new 100 bed Nutley Wing at St. Vincent's University Hospital, has just been completed.The lessons we learned from designing the temporary inpatient accommodation for Cystic Fibrosis patients at St. Vincent's University Hospital, and observing it in use, have informed the design of the new permanent Nutley Wing. A very simple example includes the provision of additional storage space for personal effects – within the parameters of infection control - as teenage patients in the existing ward have been observed to bring a greater plethora of beauty products, games consoles, laptops, dvds, etc, than is typically anticipated in designing facilities for adult patients!
St. Vincent’s University Hospital is the major acute teaching hospital serving the south-east of Dublin city. The 470 bed hospital provides over 40 medical specialities including the National Centre for Adult Cystic Fibrosis, the National Liver Transplant Unit, and is one of 8 specialist national cancer care centres in Ireland.
Since 1997, STW has maintained and updated the Development Control Plan for the hospital, and has been privileged to oversee the delivery of over £300 million of capital projects on the campus in that time.
