The Lyon Edul-Herriot Hospital Chapel is located within a hospital complex built in 1920 by Lyon architect Tony Garnier in the district of Grange Blanche. The original project for the hospital, which was inaugurated in 1934 by the President of the Republic, Albert Lebrun, did not include a chapel. Following the demolition of the Charit é hospital, the Sisters of the Charit é hospital and the Sisters of H ô tel-Dieu moved into the new premises immediately after completion, on the decision of the city council and Mayor Edouard Herriot. Tony Garnier commissioned the church to be built by one of his students, Louis Thomas, who joined his studio in 1924.
