The beginnings of the medical assistance are connected to the Franciscan monks, in the St. Nepomuk religious association.

Amid 1735-1737, on initiative of count Hamilton, the president of the association and the commanding officer of Banat built the town's first hospital and first drugstore. When finished, the hospital was undertaken by the Mizericordian monks (the black popes) who came in help of the sick. The church, united with the hospital, was built in 1748-1753, in the place of the old chapel of the Mizericordian monks' order. In 1849 the building was destroyed and rebuilt in 1851; in 1990 the Romano-Catholic church gave it to the Greco-Catholics.

Its walls keep Timișoara's oldest organ. The old hospital operates even today as an ophthalmologic clinic.
