Hospitals in Kerry
Providing excellence in medical care in a professional , courteous, non judgemental & friendly environment.
Hospitals play an important role in the healthcare system. Kerry’s health care system is modern and reasonably efficient. It is also free, if you don't count the taxes that pay for it all. Every resident in Ireland is entitled to free public health coverage. The level of free coverage depends on your economic health - the poorer it is, the higher your level of coverage. Once you are resident in Ireland, you are automatically entitled to one or the other. It serves as the main hospital for County Kerry and also serves the people in parts of North Cork and West Limerick. Other hospitals include the private Bon Secours Hospital in Tralee and community hospitals in Cahirciveen, Dingle, Kenmare, Killarney and Listowel. All these hospitals are run by highly qualifies and expert doctors and nurses and they are also very caring. The hospitals are air-conditioned and enriched with modern technology equipments which make the treatment even better.
