LIQUIDATORS FOR MOUNT Carmel Hospital are now sorting out the details of paying back deposits to patients.

It was announced yesterday that the private maternity hospital is to be wound down, following a petition by its directors.

A spokesperson from the National Asset Management Agency (NAMA) told TheJournal.ie:

[The] position is that NAMA has indicated that it will ensure that if deposits have been paid to the hospital (as opposed to the consultant) then they will be returned.

The hospital usually deals with around 25 births a week. Obstetrics patients who are booked into the hospital for maternity services for the months ahead will be transferred to alternative maternity hospitals.

Liquidators are to liaise with the hospital’s medical consultants and management about any deposits that may be outstanding to patients.

A spokesperson for the liquidators said today that with regard to the people who paid deposits directly to consultants, they will be “liaising closely with medical consultants and hospital management to ascertain the position about any deposit”.
