Fingal Dublin Chamber Awards 2015

St. Francis Hospice Dublin has won the “Not for Profit Organisation Excellence Award” at the Fingal Dublin Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence and Corporate Responsibility Awards 2015.  The award was in recognition of St. Francis Hospice Dublin’s contribution to the Fingal Dublin region.   The contributions to the Fingal Dublin region which the independent judges recognized were the planning, development and opening of the new 24 bed St. Francis Hospice in Blanchardstown and the community learning and development programmes delivered by the hospice’s Education Department.  

The independent judges said in awarding the Excellence Award to the hospice, “St. Francis Hospice provides a vital service to the local community but through immense effort and careful planning, they have extended their services and their reach far beyond expectations.  Their dedication, commitment and fundamental understanding of the needs of those they support is inspiring and the quality of the service they provide is second to none”.

In 2015, it is estimated that St. Francis Hospice Blanchardstown will treat, in the Fingal Dublin region, 540 patients in their own homes, 200 in-patients, there will be 820 visits to Hospice Day Care and 500 attendances at the Out-Patient Departments.
