How we have grown so far

Our award-winning Evelina London Children’s Hospital first opened its doors in 2005.

Since then we have grown within the main children’s hospital building and across the St Thomas' site and the number of children and young people we care for each year has more than doubled.

The Trust has invested over £100m into expanding Evelina London and developing our dedicated children’s facilities since 2016. We have particularly focused on developing our facilities for children who need to visit for the day (Snow Fox and our Children’s Day Treatment Centre), cardiology (Sky ward, Walrus and the fetal cardiology unit), expanding our imaging capacity and developing child-friendly clinical research facilities.
