Winter warmth and care at Woodlands Unit

Staff in the Woodlands Unit, Connolly Hospital Blanchardstown are providing a welcoming, caring and innovative residential service for older patients awaiting full discharge from the hospital.   Approaching its first anniversary, Woodlands Unit was developed to address the challenge of ensuring patients are in the right place and right service.

For those older patients who no longer require acute care but for whom a return home or to a non-acute setting may take some time to arrange, the staff and team in Woodlands ensure that they have a unit that is homely, welcoming and comfortable.
