Earlier this year, we welcomed Bernadette White to stay in our Courtyard Apartments at Croí House as her husband John received care in Galway University Hospital. Following her stay, we were very grateful to receive this lovely testimonial from Bernadette, who spoke very kindly about the staff at Croí and the Courtyard Apartments.
“My husband, John, had to undergo Triple Bypass Surgery. We live in Donegal which is 4 hours from Galway Hospital. The Cardiac Nurse in Letterkenny Hospital informed us of The Courtyard Apartments at Croí House. What a facility, brilliant! It takes away the stress of trying to find accommodation in Galway. The staff were brilliant, especially Christine (Head of Fundraising at Croí). She made us feel so welcome and was so helpful. It’s brilliant that family members can come and stay, it’s within walking distance of the hospital and has a direct phone line. The apartment was beautiful – a home away from home! It was so nice to be able to relax after a stressful time. We will never forget their kindness”

The Courtyard Apartments are a much-needed facility which allow family members to be as close as possible to patients who are in hospital for cardiac or stroke care in Galway University Hospitals. The apartments are open 365 days a year and have a 98% occupancy rate, with many families coming from the Mid/North West, like the White family.
The apartments consist of three self-contained ground floor accommodation units, located just a ten-minute walk from University Hospital Galway. They are funded entirely by donations and events organised by Croí and have supported families from all over Ireland and even internationally.
