Beaumont Hospital opened its doors to the Irish public in November 1987 following the closure of two city centre hospitals - The Charitable Infirmary and St Laurence’s. Personnel from both former hospitals were transferred to Beaumont where they merged to become the staff of the new Beaumont Hospital complex.
Beaumont Hospital now provides emergency and acute care services across fifty-four specialities to its immediate North Dublin community and is:
- one of seven designated national cancer centres
- the regional centre for Ear, Nose and Throat and Gastroenterology
- the national referral centre for Neurosurgery and Neurology
- the country’s only hospital to conduct renal transplants
- the seat of the national cochlear implant programme in Ireland
Beaumont Hospital Foundation
Established in 1995, Beaumont Hospital Foundation is a registered charity which operates independently of Beaumont Hospital administration. Our mission is to generate and manage funding for innovative health and medical advances, aimed at improving quality of life for patients and their families.
Through the support of former patients and their relatives, corporate supporters, donors and the local community, we fundraise to finance patient care initiatives – which fall outside of the government’s funding allocation to the hospital - yet contribute enormously to the quality of care and support Beaumont Hospital’s staff are able to provide to patients in its care.
All funds raised by our supporters are ploughed back into the hospital to support projects from across the entire Beaumont Hospital complex on an annual basis. These range from the complete refurbishment of a ward, to a hoist to support incapacitated patients and even something as simple as producing a children’s information booklet to explain the various roles of staff in the hospital.
The projects we fund aim to create a better patient experience for people attending Beaumont Hospital.
