The hospital was established in 1846, through the initiative of Cardinal Juraj Haulik, the Archbishop of Zagreb. It changed locations a number of times until a permanent hospital campus was completed in 1894 by the German architect Kuno Waidmann, on the site of the former Villa Socias and a neighbouring graveyard in Vinogradska Street.
The Sisters continued to run the hospital until it was confiscated after World War II. Thereafter it was nationalized by the Communist government (in 1948) and renamed the Dr. Mladen Stojanović Hospital. The original name was restored in 1992, but the government retained its ownership. It is now operated under the Ministry of Health.
As of 2007[update], the hospital consists of 13 clinics and 7 specialised institutes, with a total of 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 a school for nurses.
