Harold Wood Hospital was located in the London Borough of Havering. London South Bank University Havering campus is currently located at the hospital site.
The hospital was opened in 1909 by West Ham County Borough council, as the Grange convalescent home for children. It operated alongside the nearby Plaistow fever hospital. The Grange had been a private house, built in 1884 by John Compton, who owned the Gubbins estate. The convalescent home was maintained by the county borough as an emergency hospital until the outbreak of the Second World War. After the war its status changed to permanent hospital, and in the 1960’s it was dramatically increased in size.
The hospital later fell under the Barking, Havering and Redbridge Hospitals NHS Trust. It doors were closed on 13 December 2006 with all services relocated to Queen's Hospital and to King George Hospital. With the site vacated by the hospital it was earmarked for a 470-home housing development.
