Woodlands shows right care in right setting

On 5 January 2019, the Woodlands Unit opened its doors to patients. An innovative residential service for 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.

A year on, some of the team at Connolly Hospital reflect on the task of getting the unit opened on time. Woodlands Unit was developed to address the challenge of ensuring older patients are cared for in the most appropriate health care setting.

The service demonstrates Sláintecare in action, helping us to deliver the right care in the right place at the right time.
