Marymount University Hospital & Hospice

About Marymount University Hospital & Hospice

Marymount University Hospital & Hospice owes its origins to the inspiration of Dr. Patrick Murphy, who from his own experiences living and working in Cork, was well aware of the medical needs of the sick and poor of the city.  He had been impressed with the work of the Religious Sisters of Charity in Cork, especially during the Famine, and bequeathed to them whatever remained of his estate on condition that they provide a hospital for the people of Cork

Marymount University Hospital & Hospice is a healthcare facility which provides two distinct services. The elderly care facility provides respite care, intermediate palliative care and continuing care for older people. Marymount Hospice provides care to patients with progressive illness, both cancer and non-cancer, at a time when pain or other symptom issues need addressing. Patients on active treatment may benefit from a short term admission for symptom control and rehabilitation. Support is offered to families facing loss or who are bereaved. Marymount is the designated Specialist Care Centre for the Cork/Kerry region serving a population of approximately 600,000.
