Who we are
Evelina Children’s Hospital
In 2005, The Evelina Children’s Hospital moved into its new purpose-built hospital at St Thomas’. Now nearly 100,000 children are treated every year at the Evelina.
The building is designed to be a hospital that does not feel like a hospital and that meets the needs of children and their families.
The Evelina Children's Hospital was designed around the needs of children and their families: themed floors, a conservatory, rooms with views, sunlight and fresh air, making their hospital stay as comfortable as possible.
As well as a gallery, performance space and hospital school the hospital is furnished with state-of-the-art facilities: an MRI scanner, kidney dialysis unit, three operating theatres and 140 in-patient beds.
The Evelina offers a range of specialist services including children’s brain surgery and heart problems.
It is also the regional cleft lip and palate centre for south east England. All children born with a cleft lip or cleft palate in Surrey, Kent, Sussex and the southern half of London are referred here. Within 24 hours of referral a specialist nurse will be in touch with the family to offer support, information and assistance.
Why support the Evelina?
Because our paediatric intensive care unit saves the lives of some of the sickest children.
Because we have a full children’s imaging service.
Because our award-winning building has been designed around young patients’ needs.
Because together we can… help kids be healthy again.
