Marymount University Hospital and Hospice has been named as Cork Airport’s 2019 Charity of the Year.

 In excess of €65,000 has been raised to date by the Airport’s award-winning programme which has included things like the high-profile 5km Runway Run at Cork Airport. 

Managing Director at Cork Airport Niall MacCarthy said they were delighted to welcome Marymount as their charity partner for 2019. ‘This is a very important charity, one which many across Munster would know about, and experienced first-hand the excellent support and care this facility provides its patients and their families.’

Marymount University Hospital and Hospice is a specialist palliative care centre which provides care for those with life limiting illnesses, irrespective of age or diagnosis, based on a specialist medical assessment. The facility also offers support to families facing loss or who are bereaved.

 CEO at Marymount University Hospital and Hospice, Dr Sarah McCloskey said: ‘Our mission is to provide excellent care, showing compassion and respect to each of our patients. As we are increasingly funded on a donation basis, the support from Cork Airport will assist us hugely in maintaining our high standards of care to those with the most complex of needs.’
