The Orang Asli Department was established in 1954 in Kuala Lipis, Pahang. The role of the Department is to assist security forces in the fight against communist terror threats and to protect the identity and culture of the Orang Asli. At that time, most Orang Asli settlements were located in forest and mountainous areas which were exposed to the influence of communist terrorists. Health and care services for the Orang Asli community began in 1957 with the establishment of a “Medical Center” in Kuala Lipis, Pahang.

This medical center was founded and operated by Dr. J. M. Bolton with the help of several Aboriginal staffs with the rank of “Feild Staff” and “Feild Asistant” who have been given a Basic Medical course.

By the end of 1960, the Orang Asli Medical Center moved to Km. 24, Gombak for logistical reasons to refer serious cases to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital. The Orang Asli Medical Center in Gombak is called the Hospital Orang Asli. The Medical Center subsequently serves as a basic medical training center for trained Orang Asli youths. Further follow-up exercises were conducted at Kuala Lipis Hospital before they were appointed as “Assistant Nurse”. They are then placed at the Gombak, Hospital Orang Asli.

In 1987, the Department built a four-storey JHEOA Gombak Hospital building to replace the old old building for the comfort of Orang Asli patients.
