Midleton Community Hospital was built as a workhouse in 1841, a further building known as the front hospital was opened in 1937 and both buildings were run as a district hospital by the Sisters of Mercy from 1937.

It is currently run by the Health Service Executive (HSE) and provides long-stay, respite and convalescent care to the older population of Midleton and the surrounding area.

The hospital is set on a seven acre site and provides a range of other services on site including a day centre, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, podiatry, dietetic services, public health nursing and a mental health day hospital.

The bed capacity is for 66 residents.

What is the Nursing Homes Support Scheme?

The Nursing Homes Support Scheme provides financial support towards the cost of long-term nursing home care. Under the scheme, people who need nursing home care have their income and assets assessed, and then make a contribution towards the cost of their care based on their assessment.

The HSE will pay the rest, if any, of the costs of their care in designated public and approved private nursing homes covered under the scheme. People can choose care in any of the nursing homes included in the scheme provided that the nursing home can cater for the person's particular needs and that it has a place available for the person.

As the budget for this scheme is fixed each year, at times a waiting list for financial support may be in place
