Margaret Thatcher Infirmary 玛格丽特•撒切尔医院
The original Royal Hospital Chelsea, designed by Christopher Wren, was established by King Charles II in 1682 on the northern banks of London’s Thames. As the building’s Latin inscription announces, the Hospital was intended as a home “for the succor and relief of veterans broken by age and war.” The Hospital has continued to serve this purpose for the past 300 years, providing room, board, and medical treatment to veterans, better known as “in-pensioners” or “Chelsea pensioners,” who forego their pension in return for residential care.
To replace the campus’s utilitarian and dilapidated infirmary, this new construction project was designed for future technologies and modern healthcare requirements while respecting the architectural history of the campus. Three floors of the new infirmary support the needs of up to 125 pensioners with medical, rehab and dementia concerns along with supporting ambulatory care and ancillary services for the entire Royal Hospital campus. The 4th level of the facility provides residential accommodations for infirmary employees.
