The indigenous hospital at Wonosobo received a government subsidy from 1908 according to the regulations of NI Statutebook no. 276 of 1906.
The Addendum of the NI Statutebook no. 11446 of 27 August 1927 mentions its status: it is a hospital that only admits patients in nursing class 4 (tariff ƒ1,50). The hospital had in the meantime been upgraded to a GBZ (Government Civil Hospital).
Wonosobo was in the 1930s a regency, district and subdistrict of the Residency Kedoe in the province of Central Java. The regency had at the time 330,000 inhabitants, of whom 375 Europeans and 4,400 Chinese. The kali Serajoe rises in the mountain Goenoeng Prahoe and flows from north to south through the regency. Important cultures are tobacco, rubber and tea (Gonggryp 1934, 1532).
