St. James’s Hospital is one of the largest hospitals in Ireland, caring for over 300,000 patients each year.
We are a public hospital and excellence in patient care is our primary focus. St James’s Hospital’s fundamental purpose is the delivery of health treatment, care and diagnosis as well as health promotion and preventative services.
The hospital aspires to meet the highest possible standards and levels of efficiency, effectiveness and quality in all our endeavours.
St. James’s Hospital is the largest teaching hospital in Ireland and is the major teaching partner of Trinity College Dublin. Our students are very much part of St. James’s Hospital and their education and training represents our commitment to our shared future for healthcare in Ireland.
We strive to do this through both our investment in our dedicated staff and our facilities, all with the single purpose of creating better outcomes for all our patients.
Our largest current project on site is the construction of our new facility for successful ageing known as the Mercer Institute for Successful Ageing, which was in part made possible by a generous donation from Atlantic Philanthropy. This new facility is rapidly rising up into our skyline and the planned completion is 2016 and will provide world leading facilities for the integrative care to facilitate successful ageing in Ireland.
The new National Children’s Hospital will be located on the St. James’s Hospital campus, creating the largest single hospital site covering all ages.
Donations received by St. James’s Hospital Foundation are used to support our main appeals and the hospital’s priority areas of need. Typically this can go to the purchase equipment, improvements in patient comfort, up-grading of facilities, vital clinical research and allows for the further development of our staff.
Donations to and fundraising for the hospital are managed through the St. James’s Hospital Foundation, a limited company governed by a voluntary board of directors. For further information about how the foundation operates, go to www.supportstjames.ie
