The Lister Hospital in Chelsea is a private hospital in Chelsea Bridge Road, London. It is owned by the Hospital Corporation of America, the largest private operator of health care facilities in the world, and so is not part of the National Health Service (NHS).

History

Opened in 1985,[1] the hospital occupies the former premises of the Lister Institute of Preventive Medicine; both were named in honour of Joseph Lister, 1st Baron Lister, a British surgeon considered to be the pioneer of aseptic surgery.[1] It has 57 beds in inpatient wards on three floors and a six-bedded Critical Care Unit and specialises in orthopaedics, gynaecology, dermatology, gastroenterology, ophthalmology and plastic surgery, and also runs a fertility clinic.[2] It generates revenue per bed of circa £1 million a year.
