The National Rehabilitation Hospital was founded in 1961 in conjunction with the Department of Health and the Sisters of Mercy, and is recognised as a centre of excellence in the field of medical rehabilitation. We are the national centre in Ireland for primary rehabilitation for adults and children, serving patients locally and from around the country. Our principal services include the National Spinal Injury Service, Prosthetic Service, Brain Injury Rehabilitation Services and a Children’s Department and there are 119 beds with a staff complement of 360 wte. The hospital has an average of 400 new patients per year and approx. 600 return patients, with specialised medical rehabilitation care given within the framework of a multi-disciplinary team led by our Consultants in Rehabilitation Medicine.
The hospital is currently undergoing rapid development and expansion of its rehabilitation services under the direction of Medical Consultants in Rehabilitation. A design team has been appointed for planning a new hospital on site which we hope will double our bed capacity to cope with an ever increasing catchment area and to meet the demands on the hospital which are increasing each year. The growth and development of the hospital envisaged in this plan for expansion will consolidate and strengthen the National Rehabilitation Hospital’s role as provider of expert specialised medical rehabilitation services.
The hospital is located on the east coast of Dublin, approx 8 miles from the city centre, beside the sea, close to the picturesque Wicklow Mountains and equidistant to Dun Laoghaire and Blackrock town centres. The hospital is easily reached by a number of buses from the city centre and is situated close to a DART station.
