Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest Hospital Trusts in England.
It includes Birmingham Heartlands Hospital, Solihull Hospital and Community Services, Good Hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield and Birmingham Chest Clinic. They also run a number of smaller satellite units, allowing people to be treated as close to home as possible.
The Trust is a world leader in tackling MRSA and specialises in treating patients suffering from a wide range of illnesses including heart and kidney disease, cancer, HIV and AIDS, as well as respiratory conditions like Cystic Fibrosis. They also have expertise in premature baby care, bone marrow transplants and thoracic surgery.
Their dynamic organisation originally developed from Little Bromwich Hospital, a fever hospital and sanatorium on the outskirts of Birmingham. As East Birmingham District General Hospital, it acquired the Marston Green Maternity Hospital and became the first acute trust in Birmingham in 1992.
