The Association of plantations in the region Malang established this hospital at Kendalpaijak in the Residency Pasoeroean in 1897. Source Koloniaal Verslag 1898, 122: The missionary teacher at Kendalpaijak received some training from medical doctors and got ample practical experience in treating patients. The hospital for indigenous patients was established by him with the assistance of private funds. Daily 30 to 50 patients received treatment and care and therefore the NI Government decided to subsidize this work with an annual allowance of ƒ 600.
