The significance of the site within Omagh and the surrounding area cannot be underestimated.

Tyrone County Hospital was the main hospital in Omagh, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. The hospital occupied the same site in the town from 1899 until it closed to new patients on 20 June 2017, when it was replaced by the newly built Omagh Hospital and Primary Care Complex.

The hospital has its origins in an infirmary which was opened in Market Street in Omagh in 1796. The hospital moved to a new site on Hospital Road in 1899. A postgraduate centre for students of Queen’s University Belfast was opened by Richard Needham in July 1988 and a new renal unit followed in August 1989.

In 2002, following a review of hospital and community services across the region, it was recommended that a new local hospital be built in Omagh to replace the existing Tyrone County Hospital.

After services transferred to the new Omagh Hospital and Primary Care Complex, the Tyrone County Hospital closed in June 2017.

The site comprises a large number of decommissioned, non-operational buildings to include:

Main Hospital Block ward areas, medical imaging, theatres, day case unit, renal unit, urgent care and treatment centre, women and children’s centre and cardiac assessment unit.


• Outpatients Department


• Post-Graduate Centre


• Riverside House 


• Nurses Home / Administration


• Laboratory


There are also numerous residential accommodation buildings, a tennis court and 10 car parks providing 275 spaces.

The site also enjoys large areas of grass/parkland in a very attractive setting with the Camowen river running along the North East elevation.



The site is located within the Development Limit as set out in the Omagh Area Plan 1987-2002 and designated as ‘White Land’. 

We are not aware of any recent redevelopment planning applications having been lodged in relation to the site.

Please Note: all interested parties are advised to make their own enquiries into the potential planning approvals that could be achieved.
