The Portland Hospital for Women and Children is a maternity hospital in the West End of central 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).
It is London's only private hospital dedicated to the care of women and children, and their various health conditions. (Some NHS hospitals have private maternity wards, such as the Lindo Wing at St Mary's.) The hospital occupies three buildings on Great Portland Street: The Portland Hospital for Women and Children, The Consulting Suite and The Maternal and Fetal Wellbeing Centre. According to its website, since its establishment in 1983, over 32,000 babies have been born in the hospital. It also treats children up to 16 years of age from diagnosis, through to surgery and aftercare.
About 25% of its earnings come from overseas patients.
Many royals and celebrities choose to give birth at the Portland, as its staff have experience in keeping paparazzi away.
