Multidisciplinary Super Specialized Hospital is being constructed on 3.8 acres of land in Shahbag under the supervision of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU).


Work on the project started in September 2016 with a grant of Tk 1,046 crore from the South Korean government and Tk 319 crore from the Bangladesh government. Hyundai Corporation, Korea has been involved in the construction work. Samsung, Korea is providing all kinds of parts for the project. Already 95 per cent of the exterior work of the project has been completed and 80 per cent of the interior work has been completed. After its inauguration in December this year, a South Korean company will maintain it for 2 years.

This 11-storey hospital has all kinds of medical services in the world. This hospital has everything that people used to go abroad for medical services. There are 5 specialized different centers with robotic surgery, transplant medical services, modern facilities and about 1000 beds, 100 ICU beds with 14 state-of-the-art operating theaters and emergency beds. The hospital will be able to treat 6,000 patients daily from the outpatient department.

There will be 5 different centers for emergency medical services, mother and child center, cardiovascular center, hepatobiliary and gastroenterology center and kidney disease center. Advanced surgery including various organ transplants will be completed in 14 state-of-the-art operating theaters. The hospital will also have 250 car parking facilities.

The hospital will also have 6 dedicated cabins for the treatment of VVIPs i.e. President, Prime Minister, Speaker, Deputy Speaker and other persons and where there will be separate arrangements to ensure security. There will also be 25 separate cabins for VIPs.

There will be convenience stores, banking activities, kitchens, cafeterias etc. inside the hospital to ensure all kinds of facilities under one roof. The hospital information system is based on complete information and technology. Through which various types of cutting edge information facility will be provided.

To ensure medical treatment, 60 doctors, 30 nurses, 10 medical technologists and 20 people from the administration branch will be trained directly from South Korea and about 80 Korean specialists will come to Bangladesh and train 480 more.

After the construction of this super specialized hospital, the construction of Phase-II project will start with the funding of the Korean government. For which the feasibility study of the project is underway. The project will be financed around Tk 2,500 crore. There will be other centers including Medicine, Chest Disease, Eye, Teeth, Dermatology and Sexuality, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, General Surgery.

In many modern countries of the world such as Singapore, Korea and other western world such center based modern medical services have been introduced long ago. Due to the lack of such facilities in Bangladesh, ordinary people including VVIPs travel to different countries of the world to ensure advanced treatment. This leaves millions of dollars a year for medical tourism in Bangladesh. Surprising information is that only 5000 crore rupees goes from India to Bangladesh for medical treatment every year!

Korea has already invested in Bangladesh's medical sector and Turkey and China are also interested in investing in this sector. In that case, it would be advisable to build new hospitals in the 100 economic zones proposed by the government. Construction of such super specialized hospitals in the north, east, west and south. At the same time improved communication system must be ensured. As a result, people will receive treatment from their respective areas without going to Dhaka.

When VVIPs will also receive treatment in all these hospitals, people will have confidence in the country's medical system. This will enable people to get better medical services at a lower cost and will reduce the tendency of people to seek medical services from abroad. Saving will happen in foreign currency.

^^ That last picture shows the area where the BSMMU Specialized Complex is being built, interesting that this whole plot of land at one time belonged to Paribagh Shah Sahib or maybe Nawab family (Hasan Askari et al who moved to Pakistan post 1971, they burnt his house down in that area). I don't know if Paribagh Shah Sahib's Home/Dargah still exists in that area. or they demolished it. Which is right next to "Priyo-Prangan" Condo Complexes.

There are more STS DPS schools being built across Dhaka (multiple campuses) and in other towns like Sylhet and Chittagong where well-heeled families live. However we should always ensure that none of the Indian teachers hired indoctrinate our kids in any Indian-specialized philosophies. Such indoctrination must be watched for, and checked. We have had many instances of this happen in Dhaka University in Pakistan times. Indian teachers can come teach initially - but we should also replace them with well-educated Bangladeshi teachers as soon as time and opportunity permits.

We don't want to adopt Indian culture or "aloo mutter" Indian accent, that does not help us get ahead in the global citizenship arena.

Look at this gay Indian dance choreographer at their Dhaka campus to get some idea....he will teach you how to 'float' across the room and "Sashay". RuPaul from India. I guess for girls its okay...
