Mount Vernon Hospital, Rickmansworth Road, Northwood - Hillingdon

1902-4 by FL Wheeler in Edwardian Free Style. Built as a hospital for the treatment of tuberculosis patients, and as a branch hospital of the original Mount Vernon hospital in Hampstead (built 1879-80). The building is noted for its advanced plan, including isolation wards and facilities such as an X-ray room and dental unit. It is still in use by the hospital, but in a poor state of repair and under pressure from the redevelopment of the site.
