The Jewish Municipality of Radom ran a Jewish hospital located at Starokrakowska 17. It was founded in the mid-19th century and was originally rather small, with only 25 beds. In the 1920s and 1930s, however, it came to be the second largest hospital in Radom, with 50 beds.

In the hospital, there was a surgical ward lead by dr Wolf (Władysław) Finkelsztajn and an internal diseases ward lead by dr Ksawer Mulier. Józef Bekerman, a philanthropist and a social activist, was the hospital curator for a long time, before being succeed by his son, Leon, in the early 1920s. The hospital was maintained with the help of commissions which were part of municipality fees, or from individual donations.[1.1].
