Mater Private Hospital Cork has introduced a free Valet Parking service to make it easier for patients and visitors to access the hospital’s services while playing a key role in minimising the stress that’s often associated with a hospital visit.
Free parking has always been available to patients and visitors in designated underground spaces and the new Valet Parking service has quickly proven to be a welcome relief to patients in need of medical care in the Orthopaedic and Spine Centre and the Heart and Vascular Centre.
The Chief Executive of Mater Private Cork, Donna Roche, said: “More hip and knee replacements are performed at Mater Private Cork than anywhere else in Munster. We are conscious that it can be quite painful and uncomfortable for some orthopaedic or heart and vascular patients to walk short distances, such as from the carpark to the hospital. We provide patients with quick access to excellent care in a purpose-built hospital, providing a range of services. It is our pleasure to include Valet Parking as a new addition to our list of offerings.”
To avail of the service, which is free, patients and visitors to Mater Private Cork simply drive to the door of the hospital, hand their keys to the Valet who will park their car in the free underground carpark. The Valet will drive the car back to the door of the hospital when it’s time to leave.
