The hospital complex in the Northern Irish town of Omagh, which opened its doors in 2017, cost 105 million British pounds – and the investment has paid off. Unlike previously, the Omagh Hospital and Primary Care Complex now combines all core medical services under one roof. Patients therefore have access to a number of GP practices and specialist departments.
Optimal care for patients
The new building, which employs a mix of two- and three-storey elements, has a gross area of 28,000 m². The predominantly linear configuration of the building and the individual courtyards ensure that the rooms receive daylight. 40 single in-patient rooms, each with its own bathroom, ensure patient privacy and contribute to a speedy recovery. Most rooms have access to a balcony overlooking the Camowen River and the surrounding countryside. The hospital also has 22 recovery beds for patients recuperating from outpatient surgery.
