King's College Hospital, Jeddah
King’s College Hospital from London to the Middle East
On 26 July 1913, King George V and Queen Mary officially opened the 300-bed King’s College Hospital in Camberwell. The land was donated by the Hon William Frederick Danvers Smith (later Lord Hambleden) and the buildings themselves were paid for by an anonymous donation of £50,000.
1920 & 1930
During the 1920s KCH set up three new departments: diabetes, neurology and antenatal care. This was followed, in 1923, by the opening of the Dental School. However, like many other pre-National Health Service (NHS) hospitals at the time, money was scarce, and in 1931 some wards had to be closed to save money.
KCH became part of the NHS in 1948 as a teaching hospital group managed by a Board of Governors. The King’s College Hospital Group included: the Royal Eye Hospital, the Belgrave Hospital for Children, the Belgrave Recovery Home, and the Baldwin Brown Recovery Home.
A new Dental School building opened in 1965.
In 1966, St Giles’ Hospital, the Dulwich Hospital and St Francis Hospital were added to our group.
In 1972, King's College Hospital began to build a new School of Nursing, opening in 1974 as the Normanby College of Nursing, Midwifery and Physiotherapy.
In 1983, the Medical School was reunited with King’s College London to form the King’s College School of Medicine and Dentistry.
The Wellcome Clinical Investigation Unit opened in 1990 and, in 1991, an extension was added to the Dental School building, which also housed the Day Surgery Centre.
In 1993, the newly formed King’s Healthcare Trust took over management of the hospital, and in 1994 the Caldecot Centre for Sexual Health opened.
KCH has continued to grow and develop.
In 2003 Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II officially opened the Golden Jubilee Wing.
In 2006 we became a Foundation Trust. This means that, while we remain part of the NHS, we are free from central (UK) government control;
In 2009 King’s Health Partners (KHP) was created. This comprises South London & Maudsley and Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trusts, King’s College London University and KCH.
In May 2010, the Princess Royal opened the Cicely Saunders Institute for Palliative Care; and the new Assisted Conception Unit opened its doors to patients in 2012.
In January 2019, we inaugurated a new state-of-the-art 100 bedded tertiary care hospital in Dubai, UAE, in partnership with local and UK investors. We are now coming to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia bringing a similar model of top class integrated British Healthcare.
