The hospital was established in 1846, through the initiative of Cardinal Juraj Haulik, the Archbishop of Zagreb. It changed various locations in the city center until a permanent hospital campus was built from 1893 to 1894 by the German architect Kuno Waidmann, on the place of the former Villa Socias and a neighboring graveyard in Vinogradska Street.
The Sisters ran the hospital until the confiscation after WWII, when it was nationalized by the Communist government (in 1948) and was renamed the Dr. Mladen Stojanović Hospital. The original name was returned in 1992, but the government retained ownership. It is operated under the Ministry of Health.
As of 2007[update], the hospital consists of 13 clinics and 7 specialized institutes, 853 beds and 2,334 employees in one campus. The hospital is an educational facility for institutes of higher education, i.e., the medical and dental schools, as well as for secondary education - a school for nurses.
