You are very welcome to Our Lady's Children's Hospital, Crumlin (OLCHC).
We fully understand that a sick child, particularly one being admitted to hospital for the first time, is very vulnerable and has special needs. We are aware that parents/guardians/carers, and the whole family, may be upset when a child is admitted to hospital.
We would like to reassure you that while your child is a patient in Our Lady's he/she will benefit from the best treatment and most modern technology available in paediatrics. Our doctors, nurses, health care professionals and all staff members are specially trained for this purpose and are whole-heartedly committed to providing the best possible care for sick children.
We have prepared some information on the hospital - See left menu
Please read it before your child is admitted. It will help you to talk to your child before he/she is admitted.
While every attempt is made to provide a child friendly and family orientated environment in Our Lady's, some rules and procedures are necessary to ensure the effective care of the young patients entrusted to us. We trust that you will understand the need for these minimal rules and will comply with them.
We will do our utmost to ensure that your visit to Our Lady's will be as pleasant and as comfortable as possible.
