Addenbrooke's Charitable Trust

The Rosie Hospital

Sleeping baby

Over 5,000 babies each year start their lives in Cambridge’s Rosie Hospital, located next to Addenbrooke's.

The Rosie is the regional centre of excellence for maternity care and families benefit from its 120 maternity and women's beds, its own theatre suite, foetal assessment unit, ultrasound department and neonatal intensive care unit. 

As well as world-class staff, philanthropy plays an important role in the level of care that can be provided.  Indeed, it was local entrepreneur, Sir David Robinson, who funded the hospital’s construction in the early 1980s. The hospital was subsequently named after David’s mother, Rosie.  

Kind donations continue to make a difference to new families today as they benefit from specialist staff, equipment, facilities, research and every day comforts only possible thanks to public support.

We are now seeking £153,000 for two services essential in supporting new-born, vulnerable babies across the East of England – the acute neonatal transport service and the neonatal intensive care unit.
