Voted CIT Rag Week 2016 Beneficiary
Mission statement: ‘in providing excellent care, we cherish the uniqueness and dignity of each person, showing compassion and respect. We strive for quality and integrity in all we do.’
Marymount Hospice has been voted, by CIT student and staff, as the main CIT RAG Week 2016 Charity, and will receive 50% of funds raised. The remaining funds will be donated to other worthy causes including those featured on the poll.
Marymount University Hospital & Hospice is a healthcare facility which provides two distinct services. The elderly care facility provides respite care, intermediate palliative care and continuing care for older people. Marymount Hospice provides care to patients with progressive illness, both cancer and non-cancer, at a time when pain or other symptom issues need addressing. Patients on active treatment may benefit from a short term admission for symptom control and rehabilitation. Support is offered to families facing loss or who are bereaved. Marymount is the designated Specialist Care Centre for the Cork/Kerry region serving a population of approximately 600,000. The service is designed to help people live as actively as possible in the face of advancing illness. The patient and their family are at all times at the centre of our philosophy of care.
The cost of providing this service is met by a combination of state funding and by donated funds, so let’s help support this very worthy organisation by raising as much as possible during CIT Rag Week 2016.
