Other northern and eastern counties

In July 2018, RCSI Hospitals announced a 12-year low in overcrowding.[3]

Services[edit]

The Group is headed by a Chief Executive, who is accountable to the National Director for Acute Services in the Health Service Executive,[4] and is responsibility for delivering inpatient care, emergency care, maternity services, outpatient care and diagnostic services at its designated hospitals.[4] The Group's academic partner is the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.[1]
