In Health sector, UT’s activities are still limited to Primary Health Care Service. It has established, so far, 03 Rural Hospitals (10-15 bed) at Maloncha (Jamalpur), Shamur Barhi (Louhojong) and Motkhola (Kishoreganj). These hospitals have busy outdoors with reasonably good diagnostic facilities: Pathological Lab, ECG, USG, X-ray etc. It’s indoor is only open to Eye treatments: cataract, DCT, DCR etc.
To cope with patient load, we have focused on ‘capacity building’ of these hospitals. In 2018, we already expanded Maloncha Hospital known as “Alhajj MA Rashid Maa, Shishu o Chokkhu Hospital” to create separate ‘Eye Department”. We also introduced a ‘physiotherapy center’ and a ‘diabetic center’ besides its existing EPI Center. A digital x-ray is also included recently.
Besides these, we have 4 more outdoor clinics at Momenabad (Jamalpur), Nijkunjora (Feni), Sribordi (Sherpur) and Hossainpur (Gaibandha). Most of these have basic diagnostic facilities. These are run by a full time paramedic with doctor’s schedule twice a week.
At the moment, on an average, we facilitate over 1,00,000 outdoor patients; about 25% of these patients receive free medicines. We also conduct over 2500 cataract operations annually almost free of cost for poor patients and very affordable package options for the middle earners. Besides these, UT also undertakes following events basically for the poor and rural society:
- ◙ We conduct on an average of 10-15 Outdoor Medical Camps per year in collaboration with Specialized Hospitals like Society for Assistance to Hearing Impaired Children (SAHIC), Starkey Hearing Foundation – USA, United Hospital Limited, Disabled Rehabilitation & Research Association (DRRA), Kingston Hospital etc. These are held in the vicinity of our Health Clinics and selected Slums of Dhaka City. Over 3,000 patients get benefits out of these camps. About one third of them also receive follow-up indoor treatment for complete cure.
- ◙ It also arranges secondary and, at times, tertiary health care services to the selected ultra-poor patients, especially the children and young people, suffering from curable diseases. These are arranged in collaboration with few Govt. and private hospitals of Dhaka and other Division towns under our organized network. On an average 100 such patients get cured and go back to the normal life who once lost hope of normal life.
- ◙ UT also involved itself in capacity building of the Govt. Health Care Facilities. In 2017-18, as a pilot project, it renovated Melandah Thana Health Complex and introduced a standard healthcare system for patients and doctors both in collaboration with Health Complex Authority and Civil Surgeon. It proved to be a landmark project.
Besides primary health care, UT is also setting up a 200 bed referral Hospital at Jamalpur as pilot project to gain secondary health care capability. Though will be operated in commercial setting, it will keep its service within the affordable range of the middleclass families with very affordable discount facilities to for the poor and ultra-poor.
