Work on new HSE nursing unit in Tymon to begin this week

The HSE management has confirmed that the building programme for the new Community Nursing Unit in Tymon North, Tallaght, will commence next Monday, May 29.

The HSE had previously reported in a statement that “This community unit will be built as replacement for St. Brigid’s home Crooksling due to the fact that St Brigid’s does not meet the National Quality Standards for Residential Care Settings for Older People in Ireland.”

Councillors Charlie O’Connor and Mick Duff welcomed progress on the Project.

Cllr O’Connor was told that the new Community Unit will take two years to build and that “St Brigid’s Community Unit will remain open until the build is finalised”.

Cllr O’Connor expects news of the commencement of the building programme at Tymon North to be welcomed by the community and has stressed to HSE management that they must continue to work closely with all staff, families and residents to ensure a smooth transition to the new state-of-the-art facility in Tymon North.
