Hospital description

This hospital offers PJ and Famulatur plaements.

The Mater Misericordiae University Hospital has provided public hospital care to adult patients for more than 150 years. The hospital is a charitable voluntary hospital that holds a unique place in the delivery of healthcare, not only to the community of North Dublin but also to the rest of the country with its tertiary services. The hospital was established in 1861 under the auspices of Catherine McAuley and the Sisters of Mercy. The Mission and Ethos of the organisation is based on devotion to the sick and elderly, ensuring that they are appropriately cared for and that this care of service is extended not only to patients, but also to their relatives and carers. It is also closely affiliated to University College Dublin and the Royal College of Surgeons in Dublin, and hosts a medical school for both of these institutions.

The hospital has two national specialities, cardiothoracic surgery (including transplantation) and spinal injuries. Regional specialities include, ophthalmology, dermatology, breast cancer screening and oncology. The hospital also provides services under a range of medical and surgical specialities, including cardiology, renal services, general and vascular surgery, urology and orthopaedics.

The hospital is closely associated with the Children’s Hospital, Temple Street and the two hospitals are based adjacent to one another on the north side of Dublin, the capital of the Republic of Ireland. The hospitals were established and run with the distinctive ethos of the Sisters of Mercy (Mater Hospital) and the Sisters of Charity (The Children’s Hospital) as Catholic voluntary hospitals within the national health service of the Republic. Both hospitals are highly regarded teaching hospitals associated with the National University of Ireland and the Royal College of Surgeons and also provide national tertiary care in many branches of medicine.
