 The hospital was founded in 1860 as The North London Hospital for Consumption and Diseases of the Chest in Fitzroy Square (St. Pancras) and moved in 1864 to Mount Vernon in Hampstead. In 1904, the hospital moved to its current site on part of the Northwood Park estate in Northwood and the Hampstead building was then used by the Medical Research Council's National Institute for Medical Research.

The hospital was arranged as a sanatorium with the wards following a semi circle shape either side of a central staircase.

The first patients arrived at the hospital in September 1904. During the First World War, soldiers were treated there and at the outbreak of the Second World War Mount Vernon became a general hospital.In 1967, The Marie Curie Hospital, which provided cancer services, moved to Mount Vernon, Northwood.
