A Look at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children

Active with the Division of Cardiovascular and Diabetes Research at the University of Leeds, Vivek Baliga stays involved with healthcare projects throughout England. Every month, Vivek Baliga contributes to Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity, a foundation that supports Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children.

Located in London, this group began its life on Valentine’s Day in 1852 as The Hospital for Sick Children. Only a 10-bed facility at its start, the organization received attention from notables including Charles Dickens, Queen Victoria, and J.M. Barrie, who donated the copyright to the Peter Pan works to the facility.

Today, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children tends to youths as the largest pediatric care center in the United Kingdom. Its specialists are trained in cardiology, hematology, neuropsychology, oncology, and numerous other fields.
