Thank you for making our birthday wishes come true
For 150 years, Evelina London has been saving children’s lives.
A hospital born out of love
Evelina London cares for thousands of children and young people every year, including in the community. The current hospital building, which sits alongside St Thomas’ Hospital, was opened in 2005, but the hospital is actually 150 years old. Evelina London was originally founded in 1869 on Southwark Bridge Road by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild – in memory of his much-loved wife, Evelina.
