An international standard hospital 'Imperial Hospital Ltd' was inaugurated in Chattogram yesterday. From today (Sunday) the hospital will admit patients. Devi Prasad Shetty (Devi Shetty), a noted cardiac surgeon in Indian sub-continent, yesterday inaugurated the 375-bed modern hospital located in Phartali area of the port city. Shetty, the chairman and founder of Narayana Health, a chain of 21 medical centres in India, said with the inauguration of such international standard hospital in Chattogram the trend of Bangladeshi patients travelling abroad for medical treatment will reduce.

The hospital, constructed in seven acres of land with all modern equipment and amenities, established by Chattogram Eye Infirmary and Training Complex Trust and some renowned local investors in the port city. Indian Narayana Health and Imperial Hospital will jointly run the cardiac centre, while there will be 10-12 foreign doctors in the some core departments, said Prof Dr Robiul Husain, chairman of the hospital.

The hospital was designed by an USA based architecture company while a European Consultant Group worked tirelessly for the last four years to built 660,000 square feet hospital with nurses and technician centres. In this hospital there are-emergency department, cardiac, transplant, neuro, orthopedic, gyne and obs, 14 modular operation theater, 16 nurses stations, Outpatient department with 62 consultant rooms, 64 critical care beds, neonatal unit with 44 beds, and eight pediatric Intensive Care Units.

There are also 10 per cent beds have been reserved for the poor patents.  “Lack of quality services, many Bangladeshi patients go abroad for treatment. We will ensure quality services with the latest medical technology of the world,” added Dr Robiul Husain.

“Many Bangladeshi doctors, who are working in abroad, are coming back to join our hospital. We want to use our talented people who went abroad for lack of facilities,” said Dr Robiul Husain.

Former Public Works and Housing Minister Engineer Mosharraf Hossain and hospital board member MA Malek spoke, among others, in the inauguration programme.
