Dr. Rafael S. Tumbokon Memorial Hospital (DRSTMH) is located along Mabini Street in Kalibo, the capital of Aklan. Kalibo is classified as a first-class municipality of the province and is located northwest of Panay island. It is politically subdivided into 16 barangays.

Considering the growing population of the community and the increasing demands of healthcare services at the present time, DRSTMH continues to expand and improve its facilities and services. It gradually increased from 162 beds and it was classified as a Level 2 referral hospital with 300 bed capacity in June 2018.

The location of the hospital is highly accessible by a variety of transportation means such as tricycles, vans, buses, and jeeps. It is surrounded by residential buildings, local food restaurants and pharmacies. By virtue of its proximity to the Aklan River, it has made the area vulnerable to flood.

DRSTMH also serves as an end-referral provincial hospital of the 17 Municipal Health Units of the province as well as nearby towns like Panda, Antique, and Romblon.
