The ‘Inlandsch hospitaal’ (Indigenous hospital) of Panjaboengan (Tapanoeli) was established before 1909, as it was granted subsidy from 1909 according to the subsidy regulations of 1906 (See Staatsblad van Nederlandsch-Indie no. 276 of 1906 (NI Statutebook 276). See also Regeeringsalmanak voor Nederlandsch-Indie 1920 (part Grondgebied en bevolking), p. 382. It was a small type of general hospital (GBZ) as the Annexe to the NI Statutebook 13808 of 9 February 1937 only allows for hospital care in class 4 (nursing tariff of f 1,50 per day).
Panjaboengan was situated in the Residency Tapanoeli, Westcoast of Sumatra.
