Navan Centre Upgrade

Planning permission has been granted for the build of a new NEDOC unit on the grounds of Navan Hospital. Tenders have been issued for the contract to build the unit and a decision on a start date is expected shortly. The new unit is a single storey modular build.

Operations Manager, Arlene Fitzsimons said, "This is a very welcome development for NEDOC. We have been operating out of the same portacabin since the establishment of the service 17 years ago. Our existing unit is not fit for purpose, providing no comfort or dignity for patients using the service. The unit is in such poor condition that the HSE had identified it as an emergency Capital Spend project. Local HSE personnel have been instrumental in helping to ensure that a new unit is provided as a matter of urgency".

"We are very pleased that planning permission has been granted. It is really important for patients in the Meath region that this unit goes ahead. The Navan centre is the busiest of the NEDOC centres seeing on average 35% of all treatment centre visits annually. Last year doctors treated 16,288 patients in the Navan centre."
