Bon Secours Hospital Limerick

Bon Secours Hospital Limerick at Barrington’s has recently become part of the Bon Secours Health System, Ireland's largest independent healthcare provider incorporating a network of five modern acute hospitals in Cork, Dublin, Galway, Limerick and Tralee. Situated in the heart of Limerick city on George's Quay the hospital was established in 1929.

The Hospital, a grand part of Limerick City’s Architectural Heritage, remained dormant in the subsequent 3 years after its closure. An old building without a purpose will quickly fall into disrepair so fortunately in 1991 it was acquired by the late Mr. Paul O’Byrne, General & Vascular Consultant Surgeon. He recognised the need for a private hospital facility in the Mid-West region. The hospital was small at first, functioning on only one of its four floors and employing 15 people. After a number of years it progressively began to open on other floors; however it was clear that the hospital needed significant upgrading and refurbishment. It also needed to look towards the future and develop as a private healthcare facility in a changing and modernising society. With dedicated staff to help the Hospital develop and grow, it is now and still Limerick’s only Private Hospital. Today, it is an Internationally Accredited Hospital, recognised for the priority of best practices in medical practice, technology and day surgery. It was accredited in 2009 by JCI (Joint Commission International) and re-accredited again in 2015.
