25 Bed Sligo Hospital Mental Health Unit

A 25-bed Acute Mental Health Unit was added to the Sligo University Hospital Campus. This modern 3500 sq. m facility is part single-storey and part 2 storey. It is located on an elevated site within the hospital grounds, near the main hospital with a link connecting the 2 buildings.

Central Courtyard Design

The building is designed around 2 central courtyards which offer privacy for patients and staff. The floor-to-ceiling windows bring light into the contemporary living spaces and corridors and contribute to the feeling of warmth within the facility.   Sligo Mental Health Unit structural steel supplied by McMenamin Engineering   The unit, designed by Wejchert Architects, considered the needs of potential patients and staff and this input has resulted in a facility that is truly tailor-made for its users.   structural steel and purlins north west
