Through the support of our Foundations, the hospital is at the forefront of healthcare provision in Ireland. More information on the Foundations can be found through the following links.

AHLAdelaide Health Foundation – The Adelaide Health Foundation is a voluntary independent charitable organisation which seeks to advance healthcare that is centred upon the dignity of every human being and that provides equal access to quality healthcare based upon clinical need. As one of the foundations of Tallaght Hospital, it uses voluntary funds to support healthcare projects and initiatives both in the Hospital and in the local community. Its Health Policy Department produces authoritative, evidence-based research and health policy analysis to inform Irish health policy, management and services.
