Indigenous hospital Blora

This hospital at Blora in the Residency of Rembang (Central Java) was founded in 1890 as an initiative of a Protestant missionary, who had some medical know-how. Reason why this hospital could apply for government subsidy, based on Indisch Staatsblad 1906,no. 276. The hospital was also mentioned in the report of the Civil Medical Service  on the year 1909. The Governmental Decision of 13 May 1927 mentions that the hospital, which in the meantime was transferred to a Government Civil Hospital (GBZ), had been closed on the 1st of October 1924. The Protestant Mission took over the hospital.
