Queen Mary's Hospital, Roehampton is a hospital in the United Kingdom. Founded in 1915 to provide care for wounded soldiers, it became a world renowned limb fitting and amputee rehabilitation centre. Recently rebuilt and modernised it became a unit of the Wandsworth Primary Care Trust. Following the closure of that organisation at the end of March 2014, it joined St George's Healthcare NHS Trust. The hospital now provides general community services in addition to the special services for which it is famous.
