We would like to say ‘Thank You’ to the Hospital Saturday Fund for their generous grant to Our Lady’s Ward in the Mater Hospital.
This grant of €6,000 will go towards the redevelopment of a family room in Our Lady’s Ward. Family rooms are used by relatives visiting loved ones in hospital. They are a comfort and solace to people, especially patients in palliative care.
Patients and their relatives identify family rooms as a crucial resource for hospitals.
We are hugely grateful to the Hospital Saturday Fund for awarding their support to this resource in Our Lady’s Ward in the Mater Hospital.
Our Lady’s Ward is an in-patient ward specializing in the care of gastrointestinal and respiratory conditions and general medical conditions, including palliative care.
Thanks to the Hospital Saturday Fund, €6,000 has now gone towards the total cost of €15,000 to redevelop a family room for this ward. We won’t stop until we have a family room for Our Lady’s Ward and all the major wards of the Mater Hospital.
Family rooms provide comfort to patients and their relatives
