Design by Dublin based firm O’Briain Beary Architects, Western completed work on this project in 2015. This was the only HSE project nominated in the Best Health Building category.

The building provides mental health care in its acute, old age and high observation units on the ground floor. Offices, consulting rooms and ancillary staff facilities will be located on the first floor.
