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. We also have expertise in premature baby care, bone marrow transplants and thoracic surgery.

Our dynamic Hospital Trust originally developed from Little Bromwich Hospital, a fever hospital and sanatorium in Yardley, which opened in June 1895. As East Birmingham District General Hospital, which we became following a collaboration with Yardley Green Hospitals in April 1963; we then went on to acquire the Marston Green Maternity Hospital and become the first acute trust in Birmingham in April 1992.
