After a major fire in 1821 the hospital underwent a structural change and, in addition to military personnel, civilians were also admitted. On January 1, 1934, the name was changed to ‘s Lands Hospital. It is now a modern general hospital with 310 beds and 47 cribs. ‘s Lands Hospital is there for everyone in Suriname who needs medical care in the field of the available in-house specialisms and in particular for the people who need care in the field of reproductive health care and the care of children aged 0 – 14 years.
