RSU Unmuh Jember is the 101st of 121 hospitals owned by Muhammadiyah. The Rector of Unmuh Jember, Dr. Hanafi mentioned that the launching of the hospital coincided with the 42nd anniversary. Hanafi also hoped that Unmuh Jember could continuously develop and take a role in society. “We are also ready to synergize and collaborate with various parties, especially the Jember Government to develop local MSMEs,” he explained.

RSU Unmuh Jember with built-up area 17,547 m2 is on type C. The human resources in the hospital includes 93 people consisting of 63 medical personnel, 5 paramedics, and 25 non-medical personnel.
