Summary/Abstract: The Romanian military hospitals, also called lazaretto, appeared in close relation with the organization of the military force. The first quarter of the lazaretto in Craiova was in the houses of boyar Priscoveanu. During the period of time between1833-1840, the Military hospital in Craiova was installed in various buildings in the city, such as the houses of the church Sfanta Troita or the rooms of boyar Iancu Gradisteanu. Starting from 1864, the Military Hospital in Craiova became a division hospital. In 1881 the new quarter of the Military Hospital was built by the Ministry of War in Caracal, a district in Craiova, being formed of several pavilions following the English pattern. Because of the new reorganization of the army, in 1883 the territorial divisions were turned into Corps of Army and the residence military hospitals received the title of Hospitals for Army Corps, being under the authority of the chief physician of the Army Corps.
