After 141 years of providing care to the sick and elderly, Mary-mount/St Patrick’s Hospital is leaving its historical city home at Wellington Road, St Luke’s Cross, Cork. A new chapter of hospice/palliative care for people with advanced and serious illness opens later this year when a new larger Marymount complex opens off the Curraheen Road /Ballincollig bypass.

Designed by Scott Tallon Walker Architects (in collaboration with JDDK Architects) and built on 10 acres at a total cost of €60m it will almost double the number of beds for vitally needed hospice care for Cork city and county, in a bright, modern environment. Hospice bed numbers will rise from 24 to 44, with a further 75 beds for care of the elderly, as well as a range of specialist services including radiotherapy and oncology.

MORE THAN 1,800 people have signed up for a tour of the new palliative care hospital in Cork before its official opening next month.
