This article studies the history of the emergence and activities of the Tobolsk intermediate hospital of the Russian Red Cross Society (RRCS) during the Russo-Japanese war.
The study of the RRCS’s activities until 1917 is mostly recapitulative. In Soviet times, the idea of charitable activities of any nature, including medical, was not openly accepted. The surge of interest in charitable organizations, in particular in the activities of the RRCS in Russia, accounts for the end of the 20th — beginning of the 21st century.

The result show that Tobolsk local government of the RRCS during the studied period attracted huge funds from the population for the needs of the war and was able to launch organizing an intermediate hospital, providing it with all the necessary equipment.
