Nuffield Health Cambridge Hospital is a private hospital in Cambridge, England.


The facility was founded by C Morland Agnew as the Evelyn Nursing Home in 1921.[1] Agnew was motivated to establish the nursing home after his wife, Evelyn, had been poorly treated in another nursing home.[1] Following a programme of modernisation initiated by Agnew's grandson, Julian, in 1974, which allowed the facility to specialise in acute medical and surgical cases, it was renamed the Evelyn Hospital in 1983.[1] After the site was acquired by Nuffield Health in 2003,[1] a new extension, built at a cost of £30 million, was opened in July 2015.[2]


In 2016 it was the first hospital ever to be classed overall as "outstanding" by the Care Quality Commission.[2][3]
