St. James's Hospital, St. Jamess Hospital or St. James' Hospital? The first appears on many road signs in Leeds; the second is silly & the third is correct, if my recollection of English language lessons 60 years ago hasn't been corrupted by age.

Your first is almost correct.

It’s St James's University Hospital.
