Revamped CAAU Unit at Limerick Regional

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011


A major renovation of the Clinical Age Assessment Unit (CAAU) has just been completed at the Regional hospital, Limerick. The unit, which was in receipt of a €0.5 million grant from the HSE innovation fund in 2009, used the money for much needed refurbishment and upgrade.
The aim of the Innovation Fund is the assistance of new health services and treatments, and the spreading of such services: projects that are chosen are intended to work with other hospital and community services.

At the awarding of the grant, Professor Lyons of the CAAU said the decision reflected the “confidence in the concept and workings of the CAAU” by the HSE.
The renovation of the CAAU has resulted not only in the expansion of the original unit, but also the operation of CAAU’s in a number of hospitals across the country.
