Founded in 1856 under the care of the Sisters of Mercy, an order of nuns who worked with Florence Nightingale in the Crimean War, our Hospital pioneered the use of advanced nursing techniques to help the sick, the dying and the needy in the local community.
Now, over 160 years later, the nuns have gone, but their ethos remains at the heart of what is regarded as a unique London hospital. Although we are an innovative private hospital, we are also a registered charity. Nowhere else does the work of a private hospital invest in supporting charitable services in the way that the Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth does.
Both the Hospital and the Hospice take great pride in their heritage, and especially in the Catholic ethos upon on which they were founded which assures patients of a commitment to care and compassion in the delivery of their healthcare.
