TODD staff visit the nearly completed Omagh Hospital & Primary Care Complex. This new hospital will be a model of healthcare provision, unique to Northern Ireland in how the services are delivered. Best practice in the delivery of care and an exemplary ‘environment for healing’ functioning as efficiently as possible has been the key underlying goal and a key driver for the design. The building is in a semi-rural location and included development of a new hospital campus. The building quality and approach to design is anticipated to be at the forefront of healthcare projects in the UK and Europe.
The new hospital is two storeys in height with a Gross Area of circa 28,000 m². The building is a predominantly linear configuration (running essentially North – South) with a series of departments ‘within pavilions’ arranged along and around a central courtyard and a connecting ‘street’.
When opened, the hospital will include a range of services to include:
- Urgent care and treatment unit
- Inpatient wards
- Day procedure theatres
- Clinical Investigation Unit
- Ambulatory Care
- Support Services
- Health and Care Centre including General Practitioners
