Cleveland Clinic plans  to convert a six-story office block in London into a 205-bed hospital overlooking Buckingham Palace, according to the Evening Standard.

This would be Cleveland Clinic’s  first  hospital in the United Kingdom. It’s part of a trend in which some of the most prestigious hospitals in the United States seek to profit from their  international fame by building hospitals abroad that cater to affluent patients.

To assuage neighborhood fears, Cleveland Clinic has guaranteed there will be no emergency department in the facility.

“I am delighted to submit our plans to Westminster City Council for determination. Since 1921 we have established a reputation as one of the most trusted and respected providers of healthcare. We are looking forward to the opportunity to provide our unique model of care to patients in London, one of the world’s great cities,” said Toby Cosgrove, M.D., president and CEO of Cleveland Clinic.

“After training in London as a cardiac surgeon, I know that the city offers a unique combination of world-leading medical research and some of the best and most respected healthcare professionals.”
