In the late 1950s, the Immaculate Heart of Mary (an order of Catholic sisters) had a vision to elevate health care in the growing city of West Covina by building a new hospital for the residents.

On November 19, 1962 Queen of the Valley Hospital opened a four story hospital. In 1968 Queen of the Valley expanded from 4 floors and 150 beds to 6 floors and 263 beds.
