Transfer of Paediatrics to CUH

Changes to Paediatric Services in Cork City and County

From 25th June 2024, all emergency, day-case and in-patient paediatric care will move from Mercy University Hospital to Cork University Hospital. Paediatric out-patient clinics will continue at MUH until further notice. All MUH adult care will remain unchanged.

All ambulance services will direct paediatric emergencies / acute care to Cork University Hospital. MUH will not have paediatric facilities in the emergency department.

This transition brings together services for all children under 16 from both facilities. Children and their families can now access centralised facilities, ensuring the highest quality of care.
