The hospital dates from 1733, when it was founded at Lanesborough House at Hyde Park Corner. In 1859 the hospital was left a large sum of money by one of its governors, Atkinson Morley, allowing them to build a daughter institution, the Atkinson Morley Hospital in Wimbledon, which opened in 1869.
By the end of World War Two it was clear that the hospital would need to find a new site due to lack of space. In 1950 the site of a former fever hospital in Tooting was acquired. Building at the new site started in 1973, and the transfer of all services was completed in 2003.
