About Us

The UK’s leading independent Hospital

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.

About-History

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 which they were founded which assures patients of a commitment to care and compassion in the delivery of their healthcare.

St John’s Hospice is the main beneficiary of the Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth. In addition to providing financial support, our relationship with the Hospice is crucial to the unique model of care the Hospice is able to provide their patients. All X-rays, Pathology, and Pharmacy are delivered on-site, enabling us to offer a less stressful experience for our patients and an immediacy of care that could not happen in most other hospices. The aim of both is the same now as it was over 160 years ago – to provide the highest quality health care for all those who seek it.
