5 Parking Passes purchased by the NMH Foundation as part of a new Parent Services Initiative.

We are so delighted today to announce that because of the generosity of our donors we have been able to purchase 5 parking passes for our Holles Street Parents as part of an NMH Foundation initiative supporting Parent Services. Working with the Social Work Department the Foundation will now be developing more ways to support our Parents.

As part of our World Prematurity Month Series of Events we are asking our fundraisers around the country to host their own event in support of Parent Services. Go purple this November in support of Holles Street Parents and Babies! For more information please email us at foundation@nmh.ie.

The First MRI Scan takes place at the NMH!

We are delighted to announce that the first MRI scan was performed here at the NMH, Holles Street last week. This is a historic moment for the NMH, our supporters and major donors - to have our own MRI Scanner is a first for any maternity hospital in the State! From now on, very sick and premature babies no longer need to be transported across the city for vital, lifesaving scans! The NMH Foundation is now focused on raising funds for a new transport incubator, which will help bring our sick babies on the critical journey from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to the new MRI Scanner. Thank you for your ongoing support!
