The Jember Pulmonary Hospital, founded in the Dutch East Indies era, is a sanatorium owned by the Stichting Centrale Vereniging Tuberculose Bestrijding (SCVT) Foundation which is located in Plalangan Village, Kalisat District. The hospital was heavily damaged by the war, then it was rebuilt outside the City of Jember (the current location of Dr. Soebandi Hospital) plus an outpatient unit (BP-4) at Kota Jember Station.

It is noted that the Jember Pulmonary Hospital was rebuilt in 1956 by Dokares Besuki (dr. Koesnadi). In 1962, due to the need for the development of the RSUD, a mutual agreement was made in the form of exchanging land, buildings, facilities and infrastructure between the Lung Hospital and the RSUD. Since November 22, 1962, the Lung Hospital has occupied its current location and is known as the Kreongan Hospital (located in the village of kreongan), serving pulmonary diseases (especially tuberculosis) in the ex-residency of Besuki.

Since it was rebuilt in 1956 until now, there have been 6 recorded changes of leadership (director or head) of the Lung Hospital.
