Chiswick Hospital was established as a voluntary cottage hospital in 1911. By 1923 the hospital had come to specialise in maternity care. In 1943 the hospital was passed into the control of Middlesex County Council and was renamed Chiswick Maternity Hospital. The hospital was transferred to the National Health Service in 1948 and came under the North West Metropolitan Regional Hospital Board. Within this board it was managed by the South West Middlesex Hospital Management Committee. When the NHS was reorganised in 1974 Chiswick Maternity Hospital became part of the North West Thames Regional Health Authority and South Hammersmith (Teaching) District Health Authority. The hospital closed in 1975.
