Key steps on our journey
In 2007, the Cork University Maternity Hospital (CUMH) opened following the amalgamation of all maternity services in the Cork area. It was a massive development, with CUMH providing regional Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Neonatology Services across Munster.
In 2009, our Symptomatic Breast Cancer Services began in the Regional Cancer Centre, CUH. It is one of only eight designated cancer centres nationwide. The Centre’s remit is to provide diagnostic, surgical, medical oncology and radiation oncology services for patients with cancer in the southern region. Each year it looks after 16,000 patients.
In 2012, the new €85 million Cardiac and Renal centre was officially opened. This six-story unit is the largest Cardiac Unit ever built in the region. And now, with your continued support, we’ll soon be taking the next massive step on our journey – the new CUH Children’s Unit which will move all children’s care under one roof and will transform health care for children across the entire Munster region.
