CHATTOGRAM: Evercare Hospital Chattogram, the first ever multispecialty tertiary care hospital in the port city, started its journey formally on Monday.
Though the hospital started providing healthcare services since April 2021, the formal inauguration by both Evercare and Bangladeshi leadership was delayed due to the COVID pandemic.
Evercare Group Board of Directors Chairman and TPG Growth Co-Managing Partner Matthew Hobart, Evercare Hospitals Bangladesh Chairman Bob Kundanmal and Evercare Group Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Massimiliano Colella led the inauguration proceedings held at the hospital in the city’s Ananya Residential Area.
Lawmaker Barrister Anisul Islam Mahmud and Chattogram Development Authority (CDA) Chairman M Zahirul Alam Dobash were also present at the ceremony among others.
Addressing the programme, Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi said, “When we formed the government for the fourth time in 2019, we promised our people that we will transform Bangladesh into a developed country by 2041 to achieve Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s dream of a golden Bangladesh.”
Access to world-class and quality healthcare is essential in developed economies, he observed. “The opening of the Evercare Hospital Chattogram, an important part of a global hospital network with quality accredited services, marks a key milestone in our journey towards achieving the present government’s goal,” added the minister.
Health Minister Zahid Maleque said, “We are successfully overcoming the unprecedented health crisis appeared due to the Covid-19 pandemic.”
