After 141 years of providing care to the sick and elderly, Mary-mount/St Patrick’s Hospital is leaving its historical city home at Wellington Road, St Luke’s Cross, Cork. A new chapter of hospice/palliative care for people with advanced and serious illness opens later this year when a new larger Marymount complex opens off the Curraheen Road /Ballincollig bypass.Designed by Scott Tallon Walker Architects (in collaboration with JDDK Architects) and built on 10 acres at a total cost of €60m it will almost double the number of beds for vitally needed hospice care for Cork city and county, in a bright, modern environment. Hospice bed numbers will rise from 24 to 44, with a further 75 beds for care of the elderly, as well as a range of specialist services including radiotherapy and oncology.
Marymount University Hospital & Hospice is a healthcare facility which provides two distinct services: continuing care for the elderly including respite and intermediate palliative care; and hospice care for patients with progressive cancer and non-cancer illnesses.
Constrained by sub-standard conditions in their original 1870s facility, our client sought a new building embodying best practice in palliative and elderly care. The selected greenfield site offered therapeutic benefits to patients, but was constrained by its proximity to a registered monument, orbital road and an industrial ‘Seveso’ zone.
