ODREM secures Tallaght contract
O'Dwyer Real Estate Management (ODREM) has won the contract to manage a new state-of-the-art primary health care centre in Tallaght. The Tallaght Integrated Academic Primary Care Centre, the first of its kind in Ireland, was opened by Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and the Minister for Health Simon Harris recently.
ODREM was awarded the contract to manage the building for the next three years. While the company declined to comment on the value of the deal, the Irish Independent understands it carries a total value in the region of €1.5m.
Siobhan O'Dwyer, CEO of ODREM, said: "This innovative care centre is first and foremost an excellent resource for the people of Tallaght and south west Dublin.
"However, it also shows the direction primary care is going - that is the provision of multi-disciplinary health services on a single site. The firm has built up invaluable expertise and experience in property and facilities management over the last 30 years and we will now be looking to expand our services into the health care sector and evaluating new opportunities."
The new facility at Tallaght Cross was developed by Talacare Ltd an Irish company specialising in the promotion and development of modern primary healthcare centres. The Ditchley Group and Glenbrier Construction were also involved with the project. Tallaght Cross Pharmacy and iheed (medical education online) also provide services from the building.
