This website reported a view statements on the history of this hospital (Google translated and abbreviated):
Lung Hospital dr. Ario Wirawan was founded in 1934 under the name RSTP Ngawen Salatiga. At that time, RSP dr. Ario Wirawan functions as a sanatorium, namely as a medical facility for long-term diseases, especially tuberculosis. The establishment of this sanatorium was based on the geographical conditions of the Ngawen Salatiga area which has an altitude of approximately 800 meters above sea level with air temperatures ranging from 18-29 C. Geographical conditions and cool air are ideal as places of lightning for the community, especially residents. The Netherlands, whose lung health was disturbed, at that time mostly occupied the city of Salatiga and its surroundings. In 1978, with the issuance of the Decree of the Minister of Health of the Republic of Indonesia, a clearer organizational structure was established, the main duties and functions of this hospital, namely as a special hospital that provides services for patients with pulmonary TB disease, known as RSTP. Then on September 26, 2002, with the issuance of the Decree of the Minister of Health of the Republic of Indonesia, number 1208 / Menkes / SK / IX / 2002, finally RSTP “Ngawen” Salatiga changed its name to dr. Ario Wirawan Salatiga, and is the only lung hospital in Central Java Province. With this, it is hoped that the Lung Hospital dr. Ario Wirawan Salatiga is able to develop into a hospital, with a wider coverage area, namely the Central Java region and other provinces that do not have a RSTP.
