The hospital, which was designed by Llewelyn Davies Weeks and built by Bovis Construction, opened in 1986.[1] It belongs, along with several other well-known private London hospitals, to HCA International, the largest private operator of health care facilities in the world.[2][3]

In April 2006, it expanded its outpatients operations into the adjacent building, St Olaf House - the first art deco building in the UK.[4] Then in November 2013 it took three floors in the Shard[5] and in September 2016 it moved its fertility services to the Shard.[6]
