More About Gertrude's Children's Hospital

Gertrude's Garden Children's Hospital was founded in 1947, with the donation of some land by Colonel Ewart Grogan, pioneer extraordinary, in memory of his beloved wife, Gertrude Edith. As the years go by, Gertrude's hospital has becomes more and more of a 'giving' hospital. It has won prestigious awards for its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Gertrude's from the beginning was and will always be a simple hospital: it now has completed the full circle by becoming a place of hope for sick children who have no expectations elsewhere, which was what Grogan aspired to help the London orphans.

Gertrude's Children's Hospital is a charitable trust, meaning that all profits are ploughed back into the hospital. It is run by a Board of Trustees who offer their services voluntarily in the day-to-day running of the hospital, since they are responsible for all policy decisions. Nor do they receive any rewards or emoluments for the charitable work they do. Whereas paying patients provide the main monies for the hospital's routine management, Gertrude's is often reliant on donors for the purchase of the expensive paediatric equipment it requires to remain an up-to-date organisation. Any appeals for funds are almost always for the charitable work to which the hospital is committed. It is interesting to note that for the recent building extensions, Gertrude's 'went it alone', shouldering the entire expense out of its own investments. Gertrude's officially marked its Diamond Jubilee on 8th, April 2008.
