Partner Charity

As well as being a fundraiser for St. Finbarr’s AC we are delighted to partner with a charity each year to donate some of the funds raised.

In 2024 our partner charity is Marymount Hospice.

Specialist Palliative Care Services

Marymount Hospice functions as a central hub for coordinating the delivery of specialist palliative care services throughout all care settings in Cork. Our services, under consultant leadership, encompass:

  • A 44-bed in-patient unit, primarily focusing on adult palliative care for individuals with complex needs.
  • Out-patient department featuring a specialist pain intervention service, ambulatory/virtual clinics, and day care services.
  • Bereavement and family support services tailored to individual needs following referral. We also facilitate children’s support groups for those under age who have experienced significant loss.
  • Community-based services, where our clinical nurse specialists offer specialized advice and support to families in their homes. Our care extends to children of any age and individuals with advanced illnesses requiring our assistance. These services, under consultant guidance, include an advisory component to support patients opting for care at home, in local community hospitals, or nursing homes (excluding acute hospitals).
  • A satellite team stationed at Bantry General Hospital to serve West Cork.
  • Consultant medical teams providing services across all acute hospitals in Cork.

Our services for older individuals offer expert care tailored to their diverse needs. Primarily, we deliver inpatient care for those requiring high dependency and managing medically complex illnesses that necessitate extended attention. Our facility is equipped with a dedicated medical officer, and our service is further supported by a full-time Assistant Director of Nursing (ADoN). Oversight is provided by the Director of Nursing (DoN), who serves as the Person in Charge (PIC) and a Medical Lead. Additionally, our service is fully compliant with HIQA regulations. We provide the following:
