Mercy Care South is a trustee structure established by the Sisters of Mercy, Southern Province, to assume the trustee and governance roles exercised by the Sisters in respect of Mercy University Hospital Cork CLG (www.muh.ie) and Mercy University Hospital Cork Foundation CLG  (www.mercyfundraising.ie) since the foundation of both entities 

The Mercy Care South corporate structure comprises a civil law company with its own Constitution in compliance with the Companies Act  2014, and a canonical entity operating under its Canonical Statues & By-Laws.

Governance will be conducted in the spirit of Catherine McAuley, Foundress of the Sisters of Mercy, and in accordance with the principles of Catholic Healthcare. In faithfulness to their tradition the Sisters of Mercy believe it is essential that the distinctive characteristics of that tradition should be as clear as possible to enable and empower lay persons in positions of leadership, responsibility and guidance, to continue the Mission Vision of Catherine McAuley in the delivery of quality healthcare to people of all faiths and none.
