St Patrick's University Hospital
St. Patrick’s Mental Health Services is the largest independent provider of mental health care in Ireland and consists of two campuses in Dublin; St. Patrick’s University Hospital, James’ Street, Dublin 8 and St. Edmundsbury Hospital, Lucan, Co. Dublin. In addition, St. Patrick’s Mental Health Services operate a number of community services by way of Dean Clinics across the country. St. Patrick’s University Hospital has been based in inner city Dublin since its foundation in 1746 with money bequeathed by Jonathan Swift following his death in 1745. Since its inception and with the original intention to co-locate next to Dr. Steevens’ General Hospital (founded 1733), St. Patrick’s Mental Health Services have sought to provide the highest quality of mental health care to the people of Ireland.
As part of the hospitals commitment in continuing to honor Swifts’ vision, they now wish to develop St. Patrick’s University Hospital for the continued benefit of future generations as we progress into the 21st century. This initial phase of development will help to enhance their capability to provide the highest quality care to more people while greatly improving the existing campus and scope of service provided. The O’Toole Partnership, in collaboration with the project Design Team, have been appointed to aid in the realization of this vision.
