Opened in 1909 by the Metropolitan Asylums Board as the Children's Infirmary, Carshalton Beeches. Queen Mary became the hospital's patron in 1914 and it was renamed Queen Mary's Hospital For Children in 1915.

In 1959, the Fountain Hospital for mentally handicapped children was to transferred to the Queen Mary site to create the first fully comprehensive children's hospital in the United Kingdom.

The Carshalton Hospital contracted in size with advances in medical science and moved to the St Helier Hospital site in 1993. Nearly all of the buildings have since been demolished.
