Abstract: The study focuses on the construction of the two most important health institutions in Trnava, the Hospital and the District Sickness Insurance Company and the construction of City Steam Baths to make a significant contribution to improving health and hygiene conditions in Trnava. Archival research is connected with the development of healthcare in the territory of Slovakia and the transformation of the City of Trnava during the Period of the 1st Czechoslovak Republic. The building of health and health benefits institutions in Trnava during the Inter-War Period was supported mainly by active directors at the head of medical facilities, the founders of these organizations, the supreme state authorities, which also decided on state aid in the construction of generally useful facilities. The leaders of the Czechoslovak Republic supported this development by adopting building laws and financial support.
