Our Story

Innovation is a team sport.

Tallaght University Hospital was established under charter, when the Meath, Adelaide, and National Children’s hospital merged to form one of Ireland’s largest voluntary hospitals. Innovation is at the heart of the organisation, and our dynamic, independent Board of Directors allows us to make pragmatic decisions to improve patient experience.

By providing an environment that is built on trust, expertise, and collaboration, we cultivate and encourage actionable innovation.
