The St Paul's Hospital was a medical facility at Endell Street in London.

History[edit]

The hospital, which was established in Red Lion Square as St Paul's Hospital for Skin and Genito-Urinary Diseases, opened in August 1898.[1] It moved to the building in Endell Street, previously occupied by the British Lying-In Hospital, in 1923.[1] It was renamed "St. Paul's Hospital for Diseases (including Cancer) of the Genito-Urinary Organs and Skin" In 1927.[1] It joined the National Health Service in 1948, when it amalgamated with St Peter's Hospital to form the Institute of Urology.[1] The Institute was joined by St Philip's Hospital in 1952 and the hospitals became known as "the three Ps."[1]

After all urology services were transferred to the Middlesex Hospital, St Paul's closed in 1992.[1] The building is now occupied by The Hospital Club.[2][3]
