This project comprises a health centre and headquarters for the Health Services Executive – Southern Area. It is unique in Ireland bringing together these two functions, which include professional and support staff who manage and administer a range of community health services for the greater Tralee area.
The location of the building in the grounds of Kerry General Hospital allows the public to have access to both Hospital and community services from one location.
The building is organised around sunlit courtyard spaces that provide light and views and create a calm relaxing atmosphere for the building’s occupants.
