Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The Hospital opened as the 'Hospital for Invalided Gentlewomen' in 1850, and was renamed following Florence Nightingale's rise to prominence in the mid-1850's. She was Chief Superintendent at the Hospital in 1853.

As well as providing medical care to women who were recommended to the hospital as having insufficient means to pay for their own treatment, though being of good character, the hospital managed properties in the Lisson Grove area and elsewhere in London.
