The Bupa Cromwell Hospital is a private sector hospital located in the South Kensington area of London. The hospital was founded on 29 April 1981. The Cromwell Hospital has at various times been owned by the now discredited Bank of Credit & Commerce International and the Abu Dhabi royal family.[1]

It was announced in 2008 that the hospital had been bought by the private health and care specialist Bupa and renamed as the "Bupa Cromwell Hospital".[1]

Bupa have devoted marketing effort towards positioning the Cromwell Hospital as a health destination for patients from the Middle East.[1]

As of 2011, it is reported that almost half of the Cromwell Hospital's patients were from the Middle East.[2] In 2015 about 40% of its earnings came from overseas patients.[3]
