That's according to statements made by the Dublin Midlands Hospital Group to the Dublin Regional Health Forum.
The Kildare hospital made €137,000 in 2016, and €124,000 last year through parking fees levied on patients, their families, and staff.
The charge is €1.20 per hour, up to 4 hours, and €6 per day
The DMHG adds "The revenue is considered as part of the overall budgetary position of the Hospital"
