Peerless, a multi-speciality hospital in Kolkata, with the assistance of Bashundhara Group, Bangladesh’s largest business conglomerate, is going to extend its medical services in Bangladesh through a modern system.

As part of its effort to extend medical services here, the hospital authorities introduced ‘Priority Health Card,’ a special facility, to reach the medical services to people’s doorsteps.

The service was launched through a joint press conference organised in the Conference Room of East West Media Group Ltd on Sunday.

Mohammad Mostafizur Rahman, Deputy Managing Director (DMD), and Mohammad Abu Tayeb, Media Advisor of the Bashundhara Group, Tarun Chakraborty, Head of Marketing, Md Eakub Ali Prince, Zonal Coordinator in Bangladesh, and Romana Sarna, the Bangladeshi Brand Ambassador of Peerless Hospital, were present at the press conference.

Addressing the programme, the DMD of Bashundhara Group, Mohammad Mostafizur Rahman, said that from philanthropic grounds Bashundhara Group extended its hands of cooperation to Peerless Hospital in expanding medical service for the people of marginal section in Bangladesh.

“One of the most important basic needs of human beings is medical service,” said the DMD, adding that around 2 million people every year go abroad for healthcare.

The Bashundhara Group is working to establish modern medical service facilities in the country through which the people of Bangladesh will get advanced treatment, he told the press meet.

He said Bashundhara Group has itself hospital and clinic from where underprivileged people get medical supports. Bashundhara Group, to strengthen medical sector of the country, will establish three hospitals at Keraniganj, Manikganj and Bashundhara Residential Area in Dhaka.

Conveying thanks for the initiatives of Peerless Hospital, Media Adviser of Bashundhara Group Mohammad Abu Tayeb called upon the journalists to disseminate the news of the medical services provided by Peerless Hospital to help the people of the country.

Tarun Chakraborty said Peerless Hospital with the assistance of Bashundhara Group is going to extend health service across Bangladesh.

“Through the ‘Priority Health Card’ which was introduced today it will be possible to get check-up service of Peerless Hospital for any disease from Bangladesh,” he informed.

The card holds discount up to 50 percent for the patients who are unable to bear the costs of treatment, he informed.

He said that apart from these, the cardholders would get special facility for going to India for advanced treatment, if needed.

“Peerless is a hospital which bears the sign of Bengali culture at its every corner,” he said, adding that the hospital authorities, with the assistance of Bashundhara Group, stepped forward to make a friendly health service.

He said that following the initiatives, the doctors of both Bangladesh and Paschim Bangla would exchange views, over any complications in medical service. Special seminars with specialised doctors of both the parts of Bengal, medical camps and many medical activities would be organised from now on under the aegis of Peerless Hospital.

Within five or six months around 72 medical service centers of Peerless Hospital will be established in Bangladesh, said Tarun.

He said Peerless Group works for the common people of Kolkata as Bashundhara Group serves the people of Bangladesh here.

SK Roy, Managing Director of Peerless Group, is a man from Narayanganj of Bangladesh, he mentioned, adding that Roy was awarded by the Indian government for rendering services to the common people. Peerless has established a world-class hospital in Kolkata which is run by Bangalees.

“We would establish a bridge between the Bangalee physicians of Bangladesh and Kolkata,” he further said, adding that international- standard treatment facilities would be ensured for the peoples of the two countries.

“Bashundhara Group has moved forward to take our social work ahead,” said Tarun Chakraborty.

Many Bangalee physicians are giving medical services to the patients in famous hospitals across the globe. “We would connect young Bangalee physicians with them.”

Eakub Ali said a total of 134 physicians of 40 departments of the Peerless Hospital would provide medical counseling to the patients in Bangladesh through videoconferencing, which would save huge amounts of foreign exchange.
