History

The hospital was founded in 1869 (as Evelina Hospital for Sick Children) by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild, whose wife, Evelina, and their child had died in premature labour. It was established in a purpose-built hospital in Southwark Bridge Road, Southwark, opposite what was originally the headquarters of the London Fire Brigade at 94 Southwark Bridge Road. It was nationalised in 1948, becoming a branch of Guy's Hospital. In 1976 the original hospital building was closed, and the children's wards were moved to the newly built Guy's Tower. The original buildings have since been demolished, and the site is currently a green space.

New hospital

In 1999 a decision was made to re-establish Evelina Children's Hospital as a new specialist hospital for all children's services at Guy’s & St Thomas', on the site of a former nurses' home. An architectural competition was held under the auspices of the Royal Institute of British Architects and was won by Hopkins Architects and engineers Buro Happold. Davis Langdon provided quantity surveying and employer's agent services. Construction began in 2002, and the building was completed in 2004, ready for fitting out. This is one of the few hospitals in the world to be built not around the doctor's perspective, but around the patient's. The building won the IStructE Award for Education or Healthcare Structures in 2006. Events of 2008: (EMILY) Me Lesley and MIley are going to China! This article is about the year. ...

Funding

Although a part of the NHS, the £60 million building cost of the new Evelina Children's Hospital was largely paid for with private funds, with £50 million coming from the independent Guy's & St Thomas' Charity (the successor to the endowments of Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild, amongst others), and £10 million from NHS budgets and a major fund raising campaign by The Evelina Children's Hospital Appeal.

Gabion: Architecture rediscovers healthcare: Michael Hopkins' Evelina Children's Hospital in London. (1019 words)
Evelina, at St. Thomas's Hospital just across the Thames from Portcullis House, is rightly enough from the lighter side of the Hopkins brain.
To try and get around this the hospital and the architects did a lot of consultation with patients (and their parents) on the existing children's wards, plus involving a local school.
So: one of the best new hospitals to arrive for quite some time costs the same per square foot as your average public-finance-initiative nightmare and is designed by architects who have never previously done a hospital at all.

The principal benevolent institutions are Guys Hospital, St Thomas~s Street, founded in 1721 by Thomas Guy, with an important medical school; and Bethlehem Royal Hospital for the Insane, commonly corrupted to Bedlam, the origin of which is found in a priory of the 13th century founded within the City, beside the modern Liverpool Street.
Southwark witnessed various episodes during the invasions of the Norsemen, and was fortified by the Danes against the City in the reign of Etheired the Unready.
Besides the priory of St Mary Overy, there was the hospital of St Thomas, founded in 1213 from- the neighboring priory of Bermondsey, and forming the origin of the great modern hospital of the same name in Lambeth (q.v.).
