It houses one of the country's largest cancer centres, the St. James's Institute of Oncology. The Bexley Wing was built at a cost of £220 million including specialist equipment. It opened in December 2007, welcoming the first patient on Christmas Eve. The Bexley wing provides 350 inpatient beds and employs 1600 staff.

Comment:
When the foundations were being excavated for Bexley Wing, the houses that previously stood on the site had cellars. Unfortunately the cellars had been forgotten and a landslip occured causing powercuts and chaos to the hospital and surrounding area. Generators had to supply the hospital and commuters heading home after work had long delays!
