Liverpool Womens Hospital, a major obstetrics, gynaecology and neonatology research hospital in Liverpool, England. It is one of several specialist hospitals located within the Liverpool City Region; alongside Alder Hey Childrens Hospital, Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital, the Walton Centre, Mersey Regional Burns and Plastic Surgery Unit, and Clatterbridge Cancer Centre. In 1985 three hospitals, the Womens Hospital in Catharine Street, Liverpool Maternity Hospital, and Mill Road Maternity Hospital, joined together under the management of the Liverpool Obstetric and Gynaecology Unit. This became a NHS trust in 1992 and changed its title to the Liverpool Womens Hospital NHS Trust in 1994. In 1995 the three hospitals merged and moved into the present hospital, a new building in Crown Street. This was designed by the Percy Thomas Partnership, and is constructed in red brick with white cladding, and light blue metal roofs. Outside the main entrance to the hospital is a sculpture entitled Mother and Child created in 1999 by Terry McDonald.
