Keith Kavanagh will take on the 4 Peak Challenge for the NMH Foundation!

Here is Keith's Story:

One year ago, our daughter Kate was born 10 weeks premature and spent 9 weeks in the neonatal unit at the NMH, Holles St. Without the amazing work carried out by all the staff there she would not be thriving today. My wife and I are truly inspired and forever grateful to everyone at the NMH, particularly the staff in the neonatal unit.

As a small thank you I will be hiking the highest peak in each of the four provinces in one weekend along with friends and family so as to raise much needed funds for the NMH Holles St Foundation.

Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Donate Now' button.

All donations will be then be matched by my employer. When I achieve my target I will withdraw the funds and deliver them to the NMH Foundation. 

Please spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!

The NMH Foundation officially launches the John Pollard MRI Suite

On June 27th the NMH Foundation officially launched the MRI Suite. Through the generosity of our supporters and major donors, the NMH Foundation successfully reached the target of €1.5 million to purchase an MRI scanner, a first for any maternity hospital in the State.

The acquisition of an MRI scanner will transform foetal-maternal medicine in Ireland and will offer a major advance in the diagnosis and treatment of critically ill newborn infants.  Very sick and premature babies must be transported across the city for vital, lifesaving scans but now with our own designated MRI Scanner, these babies will not need to leave Holles Street.  Our first scan was held in September 2016, marking a very exciting moment in the history of the National Maternity Hospital!

We are very grateful to all of our supporters who attended and helped to mark this momentous occasion. In particular we thank Mr Stephen Vernon, our lead donor for this project and whose Grandfather, Dr John Pollard's name has been given to our suite in his memory.
