Throughout its history
On November 19, 1978, it was announced that Cork Regional Hospital would begin operations. New healthcare facilities opened in December 2009 include the Regional Cancer Centre, which was built at a cost of €85 million, and the Cardiac Renal Centre, which opened in October 2010.
Provision of services
There are over 800 beds available in the hospital. CUH FM
is a local radio station that covers the entire hospital with its live broadcasts. There is also the option of admitting patients by helicopter: Currently, helicopters land at a specially designed helipad connected to the Bishopstown G.A.A. facility and the Highfield R.F.C. facility near the hospital. A new 1.5 million helipad was promised to the hospital on April 6, 2011, after discussions with hospital management. The helipad project was approved by the City Council in November 2018 after a lengthy site selection process.
