About Us

Since 1826 this hospital has provided care for women, mothers and infants in the greater Dublin area and at regional and national levels. 

The hospital is almost 200 years old and was the first named women and infants hospital in the country. We are proud of our long tradition of clinical and academic excellence and it is our intention to be the first choice for women needing maternity, neonatal and gynaecology services.

Our Mission Statement is 'Excellence in the care of women and babies'.

Our Vision is:

  • To be a leading international university medical campus for the care of women and infants
  • To be a leading international university medical campus for women and infants' healthcare research/development, education and training - resulting in significant health, social and economic gain.

The ethos of our hospital is one of multidisciplinary teamwork and patient/client centred care; if you are interested in joining our team please see our section on 'Working in the Coombe'.
