Orwell Healthcare

Orwell Queen of Peace specialises in Long Term Residential Care, providing home from home for residents. In 2017 Orwell Healthcare acquired Orwell Queen of Peace, based off Garville Road in Rathgar as a second location. It was previously owned by the Sisters of St. Paul de Chartres.

In 2019 planning permission was granted to expand the 46 bedded location to a state of the art, modern facility using up to date design and technology for best practice.

We are working with architects and planners and look forward to the opening of Phase 1 in 2022. More to follow.
