Springfield University Hospital (formerly the Springfield Asylum) is a psychiatric hospital in Tooting, South London and also the headquarters of the South West London and St George's Mental Health NHS Trust.
The hospital opened in 1840, as the Surrey County Lunatic Asylum. The original building was a grand symmetrical red brick Tudor-style composition enclosing a large courtyard, built to the designs of Edward Lapidge, the county surveyor.
Part of the original hospital building is now disused, and there are plans to convert this to a residential development, "Springfield Village".
