ICU to be set up at zila sadar hospitals: Maleque

Health and Family Welfare Minister Zahid Maleque today said the government will introduce ICU (intensive care unit) in all the country’s zila sadar hospitals aiming to ensure better medical treatment to marginal people.

“The government has planned to increase the beds of ICUs of all important hospitals, including all medical colleges,” he said while replying a tabled question placed by independent lawmaker Mohammad Shahid Islam (Laxmipur-2) in the Jatiya Sangsad in the city. 

To this end, Maleque said, activities of the increase of ICU beds continue considering the priority and space of the hospitals.

He said there is also a plan to introduce ICUs in all zila sadar hospitals in the future.

Responding another tabled question placed by treasury bench lawmaker Shafiqul Islam Shimul (Natore-2), the health minister said the government is considering setting up burn unit at sadar level hospital.
