Since 2016, the provincial government of the Special Capital Region of Jakarta has opened District General Hospital, which is a class D hospital, as a 'bridge' between primary service facility (Public Health or Puskesmas) and City General Hospital in order to respond the increase of the community's need of secondary healthcare service more equally. In addition to increase the number of health facilities owned by the provincial government of the Special Capital Region of Jakarta, the establishment of District General Hospital brings change in the accessibility and utilization of health service facility in Jakarta. The aim of this research is to find out geographical accessibility and utilization of District General Hospital in East Jakarta, as well as to explain the relationship between the accessibility and utilization.
