Summary/Abstract: A hospital in Stara Zagora, within the borders of Eastern Rumelia, was created after the Liberation – June 3 1883. At first it was owned by the Stara Zagora branch of the Philanthropic Society „St. Panteleimon“. „For three decades, overcoming many obstacles, citizens of Stara Zagora are fighting stubbornly to create their own hospital in the city“ is noted in the jubilee edition „100 years of Stara Zagora hospital“. The goal of the current study is to presentation and discussion of the factors for establishment and development of the civil hospital on Stara Zagora and their evaluation and interpretation from the distance of time. Materials and methods: We made a review of official documents from this period as well as publications and analysis of socio-economic and political processes before and after the Liberation. We put the accent on the specific factors and conditions in Stara Zagora: before, during and after the Russo-Turkish war and after the Liberation. We put emphasis on the roles of prominent people, the public and charities for the establishment of the hospital. The participation of the government in the hospital actions is also commented. This analysis aids the understanding and comprehension of the historical process and the ideas of the organizational forms for satisfying the health needs of the population then and now.
