There can’t be many people living on Dublin’s Northside who haven’t had cause to use the services of Beaumont Hospital, whether for themselves or for a loved one. The hospital lies at the heart of the community, providing jobs, healthcare and emergency medical services to people, both young and old.
Beaumont Hospital Foundation (BHF), a charity which operates independently of the hospital’s administration, works to inspire donations which we then use to bring about improvements in patient care. We want Beaumont to be a better place to be a patient and the money you, and other members of the public provide, is used to fund equipment and finance the renovation of public areas in the hospital. We do not receive any government funding and do not fund any salaries, except those of our own staff.
2014 is a proud year for BHF as we have completed the construction of the €2 million Day Care Hospital for Older Persons. The facility is now open and located on the grounds of St Joseph’s Hospital in Raheny. It will provide outpatient services to the elderly in the community, allowing them to access ongoing support away from the main hospital, in the more gentle and caring environment of this dedicated unit. The core of the building costs were funded through the wonderful generosity of a local donor who donated €1.5 million towards the creation of this new medical amenity.
Each year, BHF provide €100K, which the public raise, to fund the hospital’s ongoing need for medical and medical related equipment and renovation work. We receive applications from areas across the hospital for funding which can be for everything as mundane as hand exercise balls to funding state-of-the art equipment to test DNA samples to determine diagnosis and prognosis.
The BHF are delighted to have been selected to be the charity of choice for this year’s Brian Boru 10 Mile and would love to benefit from your effort in taking part. To receive a sponsorship card and t-shirt, please call them on 01 – 809 2162 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
