Mount Carmel Hospital, which provides maternity services to private patients, has announced that a liquidator has been appointed to the company.
All current patients in Mount Carmel will be fully cared for, while obstetrics patients scheduled over the coming days will also be looked after by hospital.
All of these patients will be contacted by phone to confirm these arrangements. 
Mount Carmel says mums who are booked in for maternity services in the weeks and months ahead will be transferred to alternative maternity hospitals. 
The liquidators will be working closely with the HSE during this transition and all patients will be contacted to facilitate alternative arrangements over the coming week. 
It's also been reported that the appointment of a liquidator will result in the loss of over 300 jobs.
A helpline and email facility has been established by the Joint Provisional Liquidators to cater for queries from patients. The helpline will operate from 9 am to 5 pm daily.
