PROJECT: NORTH POINT MEDICAL COLLEGE & HOSPITAL
Dariapara, Tetulia Road, Panchagarh
HEALTHCARE IN BANGLADESH
Bangladesh has made notable improvements in healthcare outcomes over the last fifty-one years. Health infrastructure has been developed remarkably. Medical colleges, medical universities, private medical colleges, private hospitals, private clinics, district hospitals, rural health centers and community clinics are being increased in numbers and improved in quality with modern facilities. Key indicators such as life expectancy and immunization coverage have also improved. It is very encouraging that infant mortality, maternal mortality and fertility rates have also reduced significantly. Teaching and training institutions for healthcare are increasing, and the number of seats in these teaching/training facilities has increased in recent years.
Healthcare services in Bangladesh are generally provided by three major parties, the government, non-government organizations (NGOs) and the private sector. In addition, there are a number of bilateral and international agencies involved in health provision through their support to the government and the NG0s. The largest service provider in the health sector is the government, and the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MOHFW) is the main public authority responsible for providing health care to the entire population. As per Health Bulletin 2019; the Population per registered physician: 1,487, No. of registered physicians per 10,000 population: 6.73, No. of doctors working under the DGHS per 10,000 population: 1.55 and the total number of facilities run by DGHS, including registered private hospitals: 7,579.
PRIVATE HEALTH CARE IN BANGLADESH
Most of the tertiary level public and private hospital facilities are located in the capital, which also includes post-graduate hospitals, medical college hospitals and specialized hospitals. These facilities provide highly specialized services for both in-patients and out-patients, laboratory and diagnostic services and various other kinds of training and educational facilities. As per health Bulletin 2019, total 5,321 private hospitals & clinics are available in the Country and a total number of hospital beds in private hospitals registered by the DGHS is 91,537. However, periphery healthcare is driven by small private hospitals or clinics. The majority of periphery private hospitals or clinics are providing medicine and other allied services with small-scale surgical and critical care facilities. There are no such good healthcare facilities in the private sector for the residents of Panchagarh, Thakugaon, Lalmonirhat, kurigram, Rangpur and Dinajpur. Many Patients in these areas have a tendency to go to India for further treatment instead of coming to Dhaka. A well-equipped tertiary level private health care institute is essential for the northern part of Bangladesh.
NORTH POINT MEDICAL COLLEGE AND HOSPITAL-NPMCH (PROPOSED)
An emerging business group has found the opportunity to establish an international standard hospital with a medical college in the northern part of Bangladesh located in Panchagarh Sadar, Panchagarh. North Point Medical College & Hospital (NPMCH) aims to deliver advanced tertiary level medical care of international standards to the people of Bangladesh. NPMCH is going to be the first international standard super-specialty care hospital with a medical college operated in the northern part of the Country in collaboration with international healthcare partners. This is going to be 1000-bed hospital with cutting-edge technology supported by highly efficient healthcare professionals. The hospital will start operation in the first phase and Medical College in the second phase of the project. NPMCH plans to start all critical surgeries that are not regularly done in that region and organ transplant surgeries like kidney, liver, lung & heart and replacement surgeries under the guideline of the Bangladesh Government.
It is intended that the hospital will target domestic patients that currently traveling to Dhaka or other cities and abroad for treatment through a combination of high- quality clinical services, excellent levels of hospitality and comfort. It also keeps an eye on North-Bengal & North-East parts of India, Nepal and Bhutan to serve with its finest healthcare service.
