In the documents of the State Archive of Brest region there is information about the history of the hospital Kamenets and its activities during the period of the bourgeois-landlord Poland.
In 1910, in the town of Brest-Litovsk Kamenets county Grodno province was opened hospital. The need to open it is strongly dictated by a growing population of the town, which at that time was more than 5,000. By decision of the provincial government of Grodno hospital was built on the zemstvo funds, ie money in the form of tax, from the presses of the population in favor of local government.
After West Belarusian lands were ceded to the bourgeois-landlord Poland, Kamenetskaya hospital was transferred to the State and kept on public money. Since 1924, she was on the content of the Brest povet department.
In the 30s of the 20th century in the hospital had 20 beds, 12 of which were intended for medical and surgical patients, 2 – for pregnant women and 4 – for tuberculosis patients.
