Before being inaugurated as Grhasia Hospital, since its establishment as a Mental Hospital Colony (KOSJ) in 1938, Grhasia Hospital has gone through 3 periods with a very long process, namely the struggle period (1938-1945 period), the pioneering period (1945-1989 period ) and development period (1989-present)


Period of Struggle

  • At the beginning of its establishment, namely in 1938 in the form of the Lalijiwo Nursing Home or Colony of Mental Illness (KOSJ), under the supervision of the Kramat Magelang Central Mental Hospital with ownership status belonging to the Ngayokjakarta Hadiningrat Sultanate, KOSJ Lalijiwo occupies a land area of ​​104,250 m2 on Jalan Kaliurang Km.17 Pakem, Sleman, Yogyakarta. At that time, it was a remote place and far from the city, which was a special feature of the location for the Mental Hospital of the Netherlands Indies Government. As nurses are Sick Guard (POS) who are not nursing education backgrounds. Only in May 1938, the Dutch East Indies Government assigned Soedjani as the coordinator / head of KOSJ Pakem. Previously Soedjani was a health supervisor who served at the Kramat Magelang Mental Hospital. At that time, KOSJ Lalijiwo had treated 60 patients, consisting of only Indonesians and Chinese.Treatment is curative in nature with inpatient services that are still custodial (closed and isolative) and therapy is still very limited. Meanwhile, patients with Dutch nationality must be treated at the Kramat Magelang Mental Hospital. In 1942 Japan entered and occupied the capital of the Republic of Indonesia in Yogyakarta. Since then, there has been a change of uncertain situation resulting in a shortage of food and medicine so that many patients get sick and then die. For treatment, at that time efforts were also made to use traditional medicines from plants obtained from villages around the KOSJ.Meanwhile, patients with Dutch nationality must be treated at the Kramat Magelang Mental Hospital.

    Pioneering Period
    • In 1945, after Indonesia gained its independence, the Yogyakarta Provincial Government began to provide operational costs, so that little by little KOSJ Lalijiwo rose again. Agricultural, fishery and livestock products can be managed again for the benefit of KOSJ. However, this did not last long because in December 1948 there was Dutch aggression against the Indonesian capital in Yogyakarta and the existence of KOSJ was in danger of returning. On the orders of dr. KRT Martohusodo as the Health Inspector of the Yogyakarta Public Health Service (DKR) then prepared an emergency treatment place for KOSJ Lalijiwo in the form of a refugee camp far from the main road which could also be used to help war victims. Thanks to the collaboration with the local village officials, emergency treatment centers were created located in Sempu and Sumberejo villages.Pakembinangun Village. But because they felt it was not safe, then they moved again to a place further from the main road, namely in Potrowangsan Village, Candibinangun Village. Only one day, then moved again to the village of Dawung, Kelurahan Candibinangun until the Dutch troops were withdrawn from Yogyakarta. The foodstuff needs for employees and sufferers who are treated at KOSJ Lalijiwo are obtained from the assistance of community members who are included in the Pakem and Turi Regional Assistants. Meanwhile, the medical needs received assistance from DKR Yogyakarta which must be taken every 15 days. In July 1949 KOSJ Lalijiwo returned to its original nursing home located on Jalan Kaliurang (now RSJ Grhasia) in a messy building condition,There is only 1 (one) building that is suitable and can be occupied for treatment as well as a polyclinic. In September 1949, KOSJ Lalijiwo began receiving operational costs again from the DIY Provincial Government and began to reactivate its employees, totaling 48 people. Since then, KOSJ has started its business again, namely continuing to treat patients with mental disorders as well as accepting general outpatients. As the head of KOSJ Pakem is still entrusted to Soedjani and for his dedication in leading the survival of the nursing home, he was given an award in the form of the name kalenggahan so that his full name became Raden Wedono Soedjani Saronohardjosoenoto (RW Soedjani). In May 1966, RW Soedjani retired and as the coordinator / head of KOSJ Lali Jiwo Pakem was handed over to Muh.Gambling until 1968. Then successively the coordinators / heads of KOSJ were Bakat (period 1968-1970), Somad (period 1970-1974), Mr. Guritno (period 1974-1981). Except for Guritno who is a mental nurse, the coordinator of KOSJ Lalijiwo previously was a health coach. Since the 60s, Lali Jiwo Hospital is no longer under the supervision of RSJ Magelang but as a consultant doctor it has received assistance from the UGM Faculty of Medicine Yogyakarta, as well as a Co-Assistant (prospective doctor) who practices at the “Lali Jiwo” Hospital. However, a written agreement was only implemented in 1971. In its further development, KOSJ Lali Jiwo was not only a nursing home but also a place of treatment under the supervision of the UGM Faculty of that the KOSJ Lali Jiwo became better known as the Lali Jiwo Pakem Mental Hospital (RSJ) with a bed capacity of 100, the total number of employees was 60 consisting of 2 mental nurses, 1 mental health (PK) and the rest were Personal Carers. Pain (POS). As for medically, RSJ Lalijiwo is responsible to the Yogyakarta Provincial Health Office. Since then, around 1973/1974, the Central Government through the Directorate of Mental Health, Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia has paid attention to the existence of RSJ Lali Jiwo Pakem by laying solid foundations for the development of a modern mental health institution, where mental health is an integral part of health and for the whole community, so that gradually there are improvements, especially in the field of hospital management.In 1975, with the help of medical personnel from the UGM Faculty of Medicine, RSJ Lalijiwo Pakem was appointed as the supervisor of the mental health integration program into the puskesmas for Yogyakarta Province until now. And in 1976, for the first time, RSJ Lalijiwo Pakem obtained vehicle facilities in the form of an ambulance from the DIY Provincial government.
