Clare Hospital provides a comprehensive range of medical and surgical services to patients from Clare and surrounding communities including the Lower and Mid North areas.

Patients may commence their stay at Clare Hospital but finish their care at one of the neighbouring Hospitals with specialist medical or allied health input when required. All hospitals in the region work collaboratively to support the patient care needs.
