Northern Ireland Health Group
On the 17th September 2008, the Northern Ireland Health Group (NIHG) were appointed as Preferred Bidder by the Western Health and Social Care Trust to Design, Construct, Finance and Manage the new Acute Hospital for the South West of Northern Ireland.

This project represents a major investment in Developing Better Services for Healthcare in Northern Ireland.

NIHG is a collection of highly skilled companies, and through these companies we combine international experience with local Northern Irish expertise, and therein a commitment the NIHG personnel delivering healthcare facilities are those who ultimately depend upon them.

The organisations forming the Northern Ireland Health Group have been involved in the healthcare sector in the UK and overseas over recent decades.  The careful selection of our consortium means each organisation brings both company know how, and personnel specific capabilities.

The new 312 bed Acute Hospital is located in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh.  The Hospital will provide essential health and social care for the people living in the Western Trust Area.

This project redefines the provision of hospital care in the UK and Ireland and achieves new standards for hospital design and amenity. The facility will be experienced by patients, public and staff as a series of well designed and considered departments and public spaces that are animated by sunshine and daylight with continuous views of landscape and rural surroundings. The environment will be reassuringly un-institutional and yet provide an exemplary and flexible clinical facility.
