Mount Vernon Hospital has a modern Diagnostic and Treatment Centre and existing Princess Christian Unit. These house four state-of-the-art operating theatres for elective surgery. We recently saw the expansion of our highly-regarded neuro-rehabilitation service as we opened the new 16-bed Daniels Ward. There is also outpatient services, spacious waiting area, coffee shop and onsite taxi service.

History of Mount Vernon Hospital

Mount Vernon hospital evolved from a general hospital into one providing skilled and specialised services, as well as local acute (medical and surgical) services. Founded in 1860, the North London (later Mount Vernon) Hospital for Consumption and Diseases of the Chest arrived in St. Pancras. A new Mount Vernon hospital was opened at Northwood in 1904 and has since received a Marie Curie hospital for women cancer patients (1967) and now the Gray laboratory for cancer research.
