Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust
Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest Hospital Trusts in England.
Our organisation includes Birmingham Heartlands Hospital, Solihull Hospital and Community Services, Good Hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield and Birmingham Chest Clinic. We also run a number of smaller satellite units enabling people to be treated as close to home as possible.
The Trust is a world leader in tackling MRSA and specialises in treating patients suffering from a wide range of illnesses including heart and kidney disease, cancer, HIV and AIDS, as well as respiratory conditions like Cystic Fibrosis. We also have expertise in premature baby care, bone marrow transplants and thoracic surgery.
Our dynamic Hospital Trust originally developed from Little Bromwich Hospital, a fever hospital and sanatorium in Yardley, which opened in June 1895. As East Birmingham District General Hospital, which we became following a collaboration with Yardley Green Hospitals in April 1963; we then went on to acquire the Marston Green Maternity Hospital and become the first acute trust in Birmingham in April 1992.
Birmingham Heartlands Hospital is based at the heart of a bustling, dynamic community. A large site consisting of modern, state-of-the-art buildings purpose built to provide the highest possible quality of patient care and support services, Heartlands is the largest hospital at Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust.
