Mount Vernon Hospital is one of two hospitals run by The Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, located in Northwood.
The former hospital in Hampstead
The hospital was founded in 1860 as The North London Hospital for Consumption and Diseases of the Chest in Fitzroy Square (St. Pancras) and moved in 1864 to Mount Vernon in Hampstead. In 1904, the hospital moved to its current site on part of the Northwood Park estate in Northwood and the Hampstead building was then used by the Medical Research Council's National Institute for Medical Research.
The hospital was arranged as a sanatorium with the wards following a semi circle shape either side of a central staircase.
The first patients arrived at the hospital in September 1904. During the First World War, soldiers were treated there and at the outbreak of the Second World War Mount Vernon became a general hospital. In 1967, The Marie Curie Hospital, which provided cancer services, moved to Mount Vernon, Northwood.
The Paul Strickland Scanner Centre opened in 1985 and was officially opened by the Duchess of Kent on 20 March 1986. This centre provides specialist imaging facilities using high quality equipment.
The hospital is also home to the Gray Cancer Laboratory which was founded in the 1950s, and the old hospital chapel was converted into a library for the Gray Cancer Institute in 1988.
In 2009 a new treatment centre opened. This provides surgery facilities in four new operating theatres. There is also a new outpatients department located in the treatment centre.
The nearest tube station to the hospital is at Northwood, which is served by the Metropolitan line.
Five buses serve Mount Vernon Hospital, three of which are London bus routes. These routes are:
