A €60 million hospital providing palliative care and services for older people will open in Cork this September, reports Olivia Kelleher.
Marymount/St Patrick’s Hospital is leaving its historic city home at Wellington Road, St Luke’s Cross, where it has been since 1870. The new hospice and hospital is located at Curraheen.
Before the official opening, members of the public can apply for a walkabout tour of the building and facilities. “We expect these tours to happen in late summer and would ask people to e-mail or write to us now for details, giving us their name and address,” said fundraising chairwoman Regina Donnelly.
The facility includes a 75-bed hospital and 44-bed hospice. The Health Service Executive is providing €17.5 million and Atlantic Philanthropies is giving €10 million.
St Patrick’s Hospital, Cork is an Atlantic grantee.
