New maternity and gynaecology facilities at the Rotunda Hospital


Health Minister, Stephen Donnelly has formally launched new facilities at the Rotunda Hospital, Dublin, including two new operating theatres, additional delivery suites and an ambulatory gynaecology unit. 

These facilities were developed as part of the new three-storey extension on the Parnell Square campus.

In addition, a new Regional Fertility Hub has also been established at the Rotunda, as part of the roll out of the Model of Care for Infertility.

The Department of Heath said the development of ambulatory gynaecology ‘see and treat’ clinics would help to improve access to gynaecology services, reduce the requirement for multiple gynaecology appointments, ensure sustainability of service provision into the future given the very significant waiting lists for this specialty and importantly, help improve clinical outcomes for women.
