Kerry Parents and Friends Association has received a donation of €23,000 from the Bon Secours Hospital in Tralee.
Owen McCarthy, Mission Leader at Bon Secours Hospital Tralee, presented Marie Linehan, CEO of Kerry Parents and Friends Association with a cheque from the Hospital’s Community Initiative Programme for €23,000 on Tuesday.

“Through our Community Initiative Programme, Bon Secours Hospital Tralee invests annually in worthwhile projects that respond to the needs of the most vulnerable in our communities and that bring about a social good. We do this by assisting charities, charitable causes and not-for-profit groups such as Kerry Parents and Friends Association in the outstanding work that they are doing,” said Owen McCarthy.

“While our care within the Bon Secours Health System is summed up by our brand line ‘advanced medicine, exceptional care’, our care goes beyond the walls of our hospital through our Community Initiative Funding.  The Projects we support are a key way in which we translate our Catholic Ethos, our Mission and Values, into action for the wider local community,” he said.

“We believe that, through our Community Initiative Fund, we can act as a catalyst in tackling social issues by assisting local charities and not-for-profit groups in the outstanding work that they are doing in response to the healthcare and related social and economic needs of the community and are delighted to support Kerry Parents and Friends Association,” he said.

Marie Linehan, CEO Kerry Parents and Friends Association said; “We really appreciate the support from the Bon Secours and this donation will be used to enhance our Respite Services so that those we support for short breaks, will enjoy their experience, while their families avail of a much needed rest.”
Kerry Parents and Friends Association provides a range of services countywide including Day and Residential Services, a limited Respite Service and a growing Outreach Service. “We see the need to vary the types of services offered to meet all types of unmet need. There is so much to do and the Association is very grateful to the Bon Secours Hospital for assisting in this important work” said Marie.

The programme is one of a number of initiatives marking a collaboration between IT Tralee and Bon Secours Hospital Tralee (BSHT) to develop new activities in teaching, research and education. Today also saw the signing of a formal agreement between IT Tralee and Bon Secours Hospital Tralee to mark this enhanced partnership arrangement. Dr. Oliver Murphy, President of the IT Tralee at the signing ceremony said, “The IT Tralee and the Bons Secours Hospital Group have an established educational partnership spanning a number of years. The signing of today’s MOU marks the extension of this partnership beyond education into the area of research and we look forward to the impacts this collaboration will have not just on our respective organisations but on the region in general.”The Lero projects which will run under the programme are designed to optimise patient care at the Tralee Hospital by ensuring the efficient use of resources.  The three-year programme will analyse current procedures for bed management and theatre scheduling and pilot the application of intelligent systems to improve relevant patient pathways. The research is supported by Science Foundation Ireland. “Efficient resource management, particularly bed management, is a critical issue right across the Irish health sector,” commented Dr. Joseph Walsh, Lero principal investigator at IT Tralee. “Clever use of technology such as the implementation of systems of this type can result in the efficient use of beds across the health system without major capital spending. Bon Secours aims to use the benefits of this research across its other four hospitals in Ireland.”“Patient satisfaction is of paramount importance to us,” added TJ O’Connor, Hospital Manager, Bon Secours Hospital Tralee. “We are looking at our processes from the patient’s point of view and working to remove steps in the delivery of our service that the patient would not find valuable.” He added, “This programme will benefit our hospital and staff as well as our patients by releasing staff time for care.”Clinical Director of Bon Secours Hospital Tralee, Dr. Helena Moore, commented, “This research programme will help us to sustain excellence in patient care, as well as confidence in a timely, efficient service for our referring GPs.”Professor Ita Richardson, co-principal Investigator of Lero, the Irish Software Research Centre added, “The programme will help achieve earlier patient admission and ensure multi-disciplinary access to information on bed and surgical resource availability as well as discharge status of a patient.”  The Bon Secours Health System is the largest private healthcare provider in Ireland, comprising five hospitals in Tralee, Cork, Dublin, Galway and Limerick and a Care Village in Cork.
