Emergency & Renal Department, University Hospital, Limerick

The fitted furniture aspect of the new Emergency and Renal Department was completed recently by EMP. The new Emergency Department features the most advanced diagnostic equipment of any such facility in Ireland or the UK, including a €1 million CT scanner allowing for earlier diagnosis and treatment of stroke, trauma patients etc. The Renal department includes 24 Renal treatment spaces including a high dependency suite of facilities including 2 full clinical isolation rooms, 2 single rooms for segregation and a four space treatment bay. The Renal Unit also includes a Continuous Ambulatory Care for Peritoneal Dialysis unit comprising 5 treatment rooms and support facilities.

EMP designed, manufactured and installed the fitted furniture. This included, but was not limited to, the following:

  • IPS Panelling
  • Wall panelling
  • Reception Desks & Nurses Stations
  • Children's Waiting Area
  • Built in seating in the Emergency Department

Dr Cormac Mehigan, Consultant in Emergency Medicine, UL Hospitals Group added: “As soon as they walk in the door, patients will see a huge difference between the facility we have now compared to what they have been used to. You don’t have to be a clinician to realise our ability to deal with any sort of situation is significantly enhanced.
