The Virgin of Health, which is venerated during the year in her hermitage of the Balneario de Archena, was popularly acclaimed Patrona de Archena, in a mass that was held in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento on the first Sunday after the definitive end of the Spanish Civil War , in 1939. The Patroness spent the years of the struggle hidden in the lower part of the crypt of her hermitage so as not to be destroyed.

Later, on October 11, 1954, the Bishop of the Diocese, at that time, Ramón Sanahuja, crowned her Patron Saint in another popular and campaign mass that was officiated in the Avenue del Carril.

The festivities, which are also celebrated in his honor, take place on the dates of the commemoration of the Corpus and in September, during the Octave, on the occasion of its annual feast.
