ARNOLD-RODRIGUEZ, Mónica  y  PIEDRA-RODRIGUEZ, Laura María. Hospital of Santa Isabel, two centuries from its foundation. Rev.Med.Electrón. [online]. 2021, vol.43, n.6, pp. 1770-1778.  Epub 31-Dic-2021. ISSN 1684-1824.

With the economic, cultural and demographic growth of Matanzas, reached between 1818 and 1839, the grounds were laid for the emergence of indispensable buildings such as the old Hospital de Santa Isabel. This institution was inaugurated on July 24, 1838. During the colonial period it was used for civilian and military purposes, and handed over to the American government in August 1899. In the neocolonial period, it provided uninterrupted attention to the population of Matanzas. It was remodeled in 1947, and in the revolutionary period it was instituted as a general, civil and teaching hospital until 2016, in which it was re-conditioned to become the current Provincial Teaching Gyneco-obstetric Hospital José Ramón López Tabrane. It is the longest functioning hospital on the Island.
