Cappagh National Orthopaedic Hospital, Ireland’s largest dedicated orthopaedic hospital, has announced that it will be known as the National Orthopaedic Hospital Cappagh..
The new name asserts the hospital’s national reach and core offering of the National Orthopaedic Hospital Cappagh. The new identity is themed on growth and represents the hospital’s commitment to patients, education and innovation. Ranked as one of the top hospitals in Ireland by the National Patient Experience Survey (HIQA) 2019, the Hospital has the largest concentration of orthopaedic expertise in the country and specialises in orthopaedic, sports and exercise, and rehabilitation medicine.
Commenting on the new brand, Ms Angela Lee, CEO of National Orthopaedic Hospital Cappagh said: ‘The new brand and identity is an exciting milestone for the hospital and represents our commitment to delivering enhanced patient communications, experiences and outcomes. We anticipate higher demand for orthopaedic services in the future, given Ireland’s increased and ageing population. In response to this, we are future-proofing our Hospital to efficiently and effectively respond to the future needs of our patients.’
Operating since 1908, the National Orthopaedic Hospital Cappagh has pioneered ground-breaking surgeries and initiated significant practice innovations. These include: the first total hip replacement surgery in Ireland (1969); first two-surgeon approach to scoliosis surgery in Ireland (2018); and the Enhanced Recovery Programme – same-day surgery and discharge for patients undergoing total hip replacement surgery (2018).
