Mrs. Boyle took over the vacated building of the Meath Hospital in the Coombe in Dublin's Liberties area, after the Meath moved to Heytesbury St. It was renamed the "Coombe Lying-in Hospital" in 1829. It was granted a royal charter in 1867 which allowed it to receive public as well as private funds. In 1967 it moved to new premises nearby in Cork St. and was renamed the "Coombe Women's Hospital" in 1993. From January 2008 its name has again changed to the "Coombe Women and Infants Maternity Hospital", but it has always been known to Dubliners as simply as "The Coombe".
It is one of Ireland's busiest pre-natal and maternity hospitals, with 6,000 births (out of about 100,000) in 1999. It provides work experience to three training colleges, including the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and Trinity College, Dublin.
