Jamalpur General Hospital has not been renovated even after 3 years of hazardous declaration

Jamalpur General Hospital is running in a dilapidated building. Even after three years of dangerous declaration, the authorities have no initiative to reform it. Doctors and patients are forced to go to the hospital due to the fear of accidents. Meanwhile, the hospital authorities are waiting for the approval of the higher level for the construction of the new building.

The British government built a general hospital in Pathalia area of ​​Jamalpur city in 1946. After development in 2003, it was named Jamalpur General Hospital with 250 beds. The exterior of the 78-year-old hospital was declared obsolete and unsafe by the Public Works Department three years ago. Sometimes accidents happen. Still the treatment is going on.

A doctor of Jamalpur Sheikh Hasina Medical College and Hospital said that he works in the hospital in fear of risk. Many times the plaster of the building falls on the head. Sometimes he had to crawl under the table in panic.

Patients who come to the hospital also say that there is a fear of the building collapsing at any time.

In such a situation, the doctors demanded to take quick action so that the patient’s services are not stopped.

Jamalpur Sheikh Hasina Medical College and Hospital Assistant Professor Dr. Md. Robin said, ‘Our application to the government or our application to the relevant authorities. May we be shifted to a new building. We can safely provide medical services without risking our lives.’

Officials say high-level proposals have already been made for the construction of the new building. The work will start after the approval of the concerned department.

Assistant Director of Jamalpur General Hospital Dr. Md. Mahfuzur Rahman Sohan said, ‘We have given demand for the construction of new buildings in the ministry through public works. Hopefully, they start the process of building new buildings. Our health services are constantly being disrupted. We suffer from the insecurity of life.’

FM Ashraful Awal Rana, Deputy Assistant Engineer of Jamalpur Public Works Department said, ‘We have proposed to demolish that building and build a 10-storey, eight-storey or six-storey building. It is currently in the approval process. The process was a bit slow for the 12th National Assembly elections. Hopefully, if it is approved, we will be able to carry out the necessary activities.’

An average of 500 patients are treated in Jamalpur General Hospital every day.
