Over 3,000 jobs planned for new national children's hospital

Thousands of new jobs will be created at the new National Children's Hospital. 3,700 people will be employed at the hospital when it opens, another 2,300 positions during construction. Planning permission for the €650m hospital project was lodged in August. An Bord Pleanála will hold its first hearing on the project, planned for the St James's Hospital site in Dublin 8 later this week. A final decision on the design of the project is expected by mid-February.
