London Bridge Hospital

London Bridge Hospital has been

delivering high quality healthcare since

1986, when the hospital opened as St

Martin’s Healthcare in the current main

hospital building. Over the years, the

hospital has grown in stature, becoming

part of HCA International Ltd in

2001, now the largest private medical

provider in London.

Today, London Bridge Hospital is a

world-renowned centre of private

medical excellence, providing over

30 specialist services, including cardiac

services, hepatology and oncology and

treats patients from around the world.

London Bridge Hospital is renowned

for bringing innovative, cutting-edge

services and treatments into the

private sector. Recent state-of-the-art

procedures now available at the hospital

include: live-related liver transplants,

brachytherapy for the mapping and

treatment of prostate cancer and

have also expanded our Interventional

theatre suites equipped with the

latest equipment and clinical software,

enabling our Consultants to perform

more complex procedures. The

project will see the hospital’s bed count

rise to over 140, with the Level 2/3

Critical Care Unit increasing to

With the extensive number of

theatre cases undertaken at London

Bridge Hospital, it is crucial to have

an advanced perfusion department.

London Bridge Hospital currently

runs the largest private perfusion

department in the UK, with one of the

most integrated academic perfusion

training programmes. Our Clinical

Perfusion Scientists are at the forefront

of developing point-of-care testing

facilities and coagulation profiling

including intraoperative cell salvage,

intraoperative fibrant sealant and

platelet mapping.

London Bridge Hospital also continues

to invest in the expertise and proven

knowledge of our hospital staff. This

includes specialist Consultants and

surgeons who also work at London’s

leading teaching hospitals. We also

continue to invest in Clinical Nurse

Specialists and Chartered Physiologists

to ensure that our integrated hospital

services extend across all areas of

patient recovery and rehabilitation.

Now occupying a total of five

buildings as part of the main site on

Tooley Street, the hospital is able

to offer a comprehensive range of

healthcare services in comfortable

surroundings, with views overlooking

the River Thames and Tower Bridge.

The hospital has expanded further in

recent years, now operating a total of

five outpatient diagnostic and treatment
