It was a general hospital, established in 1918 in the hospital ressort Tandjong Poera.  In this same hospital ressort  two other BPM hospitals are found, one at Pangkalan Brandan and one at Perlak. The hospital at Pangkalan Brandan, a residency 70 km NW of Medan was mentioned by E. van de Velde in his article in the review Het Ziekenhuis (1918) as number 2 of the legend, accompanying his article.
