Rotunda Hospital

In 1745 Bartholomew Mosse founded the original Dublin Lying-In Hospital as a maternity training hospital in George’s Lane. The hospital was a unique institution in that it was the first of its kind. The hospital moved to its current premises on Parnell Square in 1757 where it became the “The New Lying in Hospital”. Today, the hospital is simply known as “The Rotunda” and remains an independent, voluntary organisation operating under Charter with an independent Board of Governors and executive management team led by the Master of the Rotunda. The ethos and core values of its founder are still at the heart of the hospital and this is demonstrated through the care and dedication of the staff and the Board of Governors of the Hospital. Over time the hospital has evolved into a 198 bed teaching hospital which provides specialist services in order to support women and their families at a local, regional and national level.

 

Specialist Services at The Rotunda Hospital include advanced fetal diagnosis and therapy, minimally invasive gynaecologic surgery, neonatology, colposcopy, community midwifery services, and the Sexual Assault Treatment Unit.

 

The specialist services provided by The Rotunda Hospital are fully supported by a range of subspecialist services such as Anaesthetics, Haematology, Radiology, Psychiatry, and Allied Health Services within the Hospital and joint services such as Cardiology, Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, Infectious Diseases with acute adult hospitals.
