Abstract:
Beaumont Hospital has "come of age" at one of the most difficult and challenging periods in the history of the Irish health service. We celebrate our 21st year at a time when radical change is occurring in all aspects of the health service. This will have a profound effect on the nature of future services, how and where they are delivered and, ultimately, on their timeliness and quality for all users. As a large acute hospital, Beaumont's traditional role has been to provide a comprehensive range of medical services encompassing more than 50 different specialities, on a general basis to an immediate catchment area of some 250,000 people, regional specialisations to a wider population and some highly specialised services to people throughout Ireland. As an academic hospital we are also extensively engaged in teaching and research. But few organisations operate in isolation and a hospital, more than most. has a vital organic role to play in meeting the needs of its communities. In every area of our activity change is a constant factor and theme as research improves our understanding and advances in medical science enable us to provide better therapies and improved health outcomes. I am pleased to say that in Beaumont we have long recognised that we can also serve the people in our catchment areas through a combination of outreach and networked services, working along side a wide variety of service providers. The harnessing of modern information technology, for example, has enabled our highly skilled neurosurgeons to work with colleagues in hospitals throughout Ireland in managing the condition of patients with head injuries. It has seen the successful development of a service which treats patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in their own home, relieving them of the need for repeat visits to an all too busy emergency department.
