In 2019 a newly completed 100 bed unit named The Aberdeen Centre was completed with the expertise and excellent team working by the design, construction, project management and Peamount Healthcare team. This Capital Project was jointly funded by Peamount Healthcare and HSE Capital Projects. The project was delivered on time and within budget.
The Paddocks Café was opened in September 2019, followed by the first patient who was admitted to Age Related Rehabilitation Unit on the 06 th January 2020. The Aberdeen Centre is situated within the current mature landscaped campus surrounded by newly developed wheelchair accessible sensory gardens and internal courtyards, with many bedrooms experiencing wonderful views of the Dublin Mountains.
The Aberdeen Centre is a fitting tribute to Lady Ishbel Aberdeen who founded the Women’s National Health Association in Ireland (1907) and established Peamount Healthcare as a leader in the management of tuberculosis.
