An in-patient unit for acute mental health at Sligo University Hospital campus. Located on high ground it benefits from spectacular views of Sligo landscape.
Focusing around two central courtyards, where patients and staff can enjoy privacy and tranquillity, are generously sized, technologically advanced patient / staff facilities and accommodation.
Single rooms for patients are provided and contemporarily decorated living spaces. High floor to ceiling levels allow light to fill the corridors and rooms, with textures and colour bringing warmth to the interiors. Break-out open spaces throughout create a relaxed environment where patients can converse with staff or other patients. Protruding box windows frame key views of the landscape throughout the building. High level glazing brings natural light and ventilation into the unit.
Specifically designed acute mental health facility can benefit the patients treatment overall. The unique design provides safe, robust conditions for acute mental health and integrates staff requirements.
