The church was designed and built in the years 1724-1726 by the architects J Fontana and A Soari. The Brothers Hospitallers of St John of God for a few decades ran the hospital in the building of the 18th-century monastery.

They sought the poor and sick on the streets of Warsaw to be treated and taken care of in the hospital. Between 1897 and 1906 new premises were built for the hospital. Highly-skilled monks were sent to wars, to all fronts of the national uprisings of 1831 and 1963 and to the Warsaw Uprising. The church was reconstructed following damage, however, the hospital was razed and never rebuilt. Between the 1980s and early 1990s, the monks managed a special consultancy offering herbal medicines.
