The Phoenix Children’s Hospital
Sir, – I was disappointed to see that a Dublin reader wanted the new paediatric hospital to be named the Dublin Children’s Hospital (December 7th). It shouldn’t be necessary to remind people that the new hospital will be a hospital for all the children of Ireland, and the majority of inpatients will be from outside Dublin. What’s wrong with calling it the Children’s Hospital of Ireland? – Yours, etc,
A chara, – An appropriate and simple name, with no fear of litigation, would be “The Stork Children’s Hospital”. – Is mise,
