This work was due to begin in 2010. The Hospital currently employs 3,400 staff of multiple professions and is the primary teaching hospital for the Faculty of Health and Science in University College Cork.

The Irish Health Research Board has designated the CUH as a Clinical Trials Centre. The Pharmacy Department, Speech and Language Therapy Department and Occupational Therapy Department are working with the Schools in the Medical Faculty for the Implementation of new training programmes in University College Cork

Historically, CUH has operated as part of a citywide group of hospitals (CUH Group) including St Finbarr’s, Erinville and St Mary’s Orthopaedic Hospitals. During 2007, the maternity services integrated onto the CUH campus.
