Healthcare service in Bangladesh for a burgeoning population of 160 million is inadequate and until recently a significant number of people had to travel overseas for treatment resulting in high costs and dislocation for the affected families and foreign currency loss for the country. United group took the challenge and set up a referral hospital in the country to provide international standard treatment facilities in an evolving and nascent private sector industry.
United Hospital was conceived by a group of prominent doctors in mid 80s under the name of Continental Hospital. Although some progress in the construction was made by early 90s the dream of the initiators remained unfulfilled till 2004 when United Group stepped in and took the responsibility of completing the project that had been waiting to see daylight for 16 years.
on 24 August 2006. United Hospital was inaugurated as a multidisciplinary 450 bed capacity, spread over a total area of about 450,000 sft, healthcare service provider for millions of people of Bangladesh. Since its opening and most of 2007 was devoted to building up each department slowly and gradually. The year 2008 was the first full year of operation of United Hospital, in real sense. In 2009 we can reasonably say that we have been able to include most of the services & department that a multi-disciplinary hospital should have.
The departments currently functioning in the hospital including Cardiology, Cardiac Surgery, Gynaecology & Obstetrics, Orthopaedic, Neonatology & Paediatrics, Internal Medicine, Gasteroentology, Nephrology, General Surgery, Neuromedicine, Neuro-surgery, Nuclear Medicine, ENT, Dermatology, Psychiatry, Oncology, Ophthalmology to name a few. United Hospital launched comprehensive cancer care centre first time in Bangladesh with state-of-the-art equipments, technology and a team of experienced dedicated doctors & experts. United Hospital introduced PET-CT Scan, Medical Cyclotron and Linear Accelerator with IGRT,IMRT, Respiratory Gating & Rapid ARC technology first time in Bangladesh. Besides , united Hospital introduced SPECT/CT first time in private sector.We also have one of the country’s most modern Radiology & Imaging and Laboratory facilities. To ensure that the clinical departments can function and provide uninterrupted and smooth service to patients the hospital has its own facilities for power generation, water treatment, kitchen, laundry and secured underground parking for over 350 vehicles.
