The history of RSCM is related with that of University of Indonesia. In 1851 the colonial government of the Dutch East Indies established a school to train medical assistants. Training lasted for two years, and the graduates were certified to provide basic medical treatments. The degree conferred was Javanese Doctor, as the graduates were certified only to open their practice in the Dutch East Indies, especially Java. The program became more comprehensive; by 1864 it was expanded to three years. By 1875, the program of study had reached seven years and the graduates were entitled to the degree of Medical Doctor.[2]

The hospital was used by the Imperial Japanese Army from 1942 to 1945. In 1945, the name changed to Ruma Sakit Omeom Negri (RSOM). Then in 1945, the name changed again as Ruma Sakit Umum Pusat (RSUP). After independence, in 1964 the name changed to Ruma Sakit Tijpto Mangunkusumo (RSTM), then as RSCM to match with Bahasa Indonesian. In 1994, the hostital was named Rumah Sakit Umum Pusat Dr. Cipto Mangunkusumo (RSUP Dr. Cipto Mangunkusumo).

In 2008 a new building was opened, which is now the main hospital building with a capacity of nearly 700 beds. In 2010 RSCM Kencana building with an integrated laboratory was inaugurated. In 2013 the Kirana RSCM building for eye care service was opened, which is a 6-storey building is located at Jalan Kimia, Cikini, Central Jakarta. The Center for Maternal and Child Health (PKIA) was inaugurated in 2014, which is housed in a 12-story building.[3]
