The Montefiore Hospital Names Its Theatres

August 2012

We are pleased to announce that the Montefiore Hospital will be naming each of its theatres after people associated with Sussex.

Taking into account the rich heritage of Brighton's healthcare industry, each of the 3 theatres and Endoscopy suite have been named after local prominent physicians.

The theatres will be called:

  • The Ryle Theatre
    John Ryle (1889-1950), was born and educated in Brighton and served as the Physician to George V.
  • The Addison Theatre
    William Addison (1803 -1881) a local Physician who enhanced the study of haematology.
  • The Russell Theatre
    Dr Richard Russell (1687 - 1759) should be a firm favourite of all open water lovers. Due to his study of thalassotherapy, Russell encouraged regular seawater submersions to encourage recovery of muscular fatigue.
  • The Burrows Suite
    John Burrows (1813- 1876), lived in Brighton and served as surgeon to the Brighton Artillery Corp. There is a famous statue erected to him situated in The Old Steine, Brighton
