Hiqa Reports

Ennistymon Community Hospital is a two-storey building dating back to the 1840s when it opened as a workhouse.

For decades the building was used as a hospital until it became a residential centre for older people in 1976.

There are places for 27 residents providing long, short-term and palliative care.

Accommodation for residents is on the ground floor and consists of one eight-bedded room, one seven-bedded room, three twin-rooms, one four-bedded room and one single room.

None of these bedrooms have en suite facilities.

The centre has its own bus provided from fundraising by ‘The Friends of Ennistymon’.
The bus is used to transport day-care attendees to and from the centre and is also used for residents’ trips and outings.

Ennistymon Community Hospital is set in large landscaped gardens.

The building is wheelchair accessible with ramps provided at all entrances. Parking is available in several car parking areas.

Ennistymon Community Hospital is located about 2 km outside the town of Ennistymon in North Co. Clare.
