St. Vincent’s Private Hospital is part of the St. Vincent’s Healthcare Group which also includes St. Vincent’s University Hospital, Elm Park and St. Michael’s Hospital, Dun Laoghaire.
The hospital originated from the two private nursing homes at Leeson Street and Pembroke Street, Dublin, operated under the care of the Religious Sisters of Charity.
Following the establishment of St. Vincent’s University Hospital at Elm Park, the decision was made to move closer and relocate the two private nursing homes to the same location.
On 1st May 1974 the hospital was completed and opened for patients next to St. Vincent’s University Hospital – marking the establishment of Ireland’s only multi-integrated hospital campus.
In the 1980’s, the hospital installed an MRI scanner and developed comprehensive radiotherapy services in the 1990’s. It also concentrated on a number of specialities for daycare patients including oncology, gastroenterology, chest investigations, minor surgery, urology and gynaecology.
The hospital developed into a modern acute hospital with 164 inpatient and 36 day care beds with a wide range of inpatient and out-patient diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical services.
The current St. Vincent’s Private Hospital opened on 14 November 2010, with 236 in-patient beds and 54 day-care spaces. The hospital first achieved Joint Commission International Accreditation in September 2009.
The hospital operates on a not for profit basis with a dedicated management team reporting to the Board of Directors of St. Vincent ’s Healthcare Group.
