Long-term care
The All Saints Children's Hospital opened in 1883, founded by the All Saints Sisters of the Poor to take care of children with chronic joint disease due to tuberculosis.  It had 12 beds.

By 1896 the Hospital had 10 beds for small boys aged 2-11 years.  

The Hospital presumably closed in 1914 when the Sisterhood moved from its convent, All Saints Home, at Nos. 82-84 Margaret Street to the newly built All Saints Convent in Shenley Lane, London Colney.
