Overview:The Mater Misericordiae University Hospital is a charitable voluntary hospital and 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.
Our hospital provides a range of front-line and specialist services and is the national centre for heart surgery, heart and lung transplants, extra corporeal life support (ECLS), spinal injuries, pulmonary hypertension, bone anchored hearing aids, adult congenital heart disease, and also the national isolation unit. Our hospital is a member of the Ireland East Hospital Group, the largest Hospital Group in the country, and is academically aligned with University College Dublin.
At the Mater Hospital we don't just take great care of our patients - we look after each other too.
