Between 1938 and 1942 the central hospital for Burlag was located at the Izvestkovaya station on the Far Eastern Railroad (after 1942 it served as the hospital for Nizhneamurlag). Those who died in the hospital were buried in a separate graveyard.

They include three prisoners subsequently canonised by the Russian Orthodox Church: Ioann Demidov, a church elder; Father Dmitry Rozanov; and church member Praskovya Kochneva. In 2006 an Orthodox memorial cross was erected and consecrated next to the cemetery.
