El Hogar Feliz Founded

The Society of El Hogar Feliz Orphanage (Happy Home) was founded to care for the abandoned and neglected children of Los Angeles.


New Hospital

The Franciscan Sisters of the Sacred Heart made space for the small clinic in their new hospital, Queen of Angels.


Clinic Moved

The Sisters moved the clinic to its present location adjacent to St. Anne’s Maternity Home in the Echo Park area of Los Angeles.



For financial reasons, the Sisters transferred control of the Franciscan Clinic to Queen of Angels-Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center.



The medical center was sold, and its corporate name was changed to QueensCare. The Franciscan Clinic was combined with QueensCare’s other community clinics in the Wilshire District and Hollywood under the name Franciscan Clinics dba QueensCare Family Clinics.


Newly Appointed Board

QueensCare turned over control of the Clinics to a newly appointed, independent, self-perpetuating board so that the Clinics could qualify as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC).


QueensCare Family Clinics

The Franciscan Clinics name was dropped, and the corporate name was changed to QueensCare Family Clinics. Until now, the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization was known as Franciscan Clinics dba QueensCare Family Clinics.


QueensCare Health Centers

QueensCare Family Clinics corporate name changed to QueensCare Health Centers.
