MESSAGE FROM DIRECTOR
I am delighted to announce that Bangladesh Shishu Hospital is officially updated it’s institutional website. This, I believe, will be a step towards our ambition of a “Digital Bangladesh”. The hospital has been the pioneer in providing child health care in Bangladesh and is the largest children hospital in the country. Currently, it is a 681 bed hospital which offers a full range of clinical services and is supported by a team of highly qualified paediatric consultants and a group of skilful technical staff who always strive to provide complete medical services for children nationwide.
The hospital also provides postgraduate training in Paediatrics and is affiliated with Dhaka University, BSMMU and BCPS. The academic wing – Bangladesh Institute of Child Health conducts Post Graduate courses in Paediatics. Dhaka Shishu (Children’s) Hospital holds an excellent reputation in providing professional child healthcare and has gained notable appreciation at national and international levels. It is proudly associated with ICDDRB in Bangladesh, Institute of Child Health (ICH) in London, ICH in Edinburgh, and Johns Hopkins University in USA to provide collaborative child healthcare.
Besides government grant-in-aid and the hospital’s own revenue from services on payment, the institution’s financial reserves also consists of contributions from the trust fund, donations from different non-government organizations, gifts and endowments from other associations and individuals, as and when necessary.
Bangladesh Shishu Hospital & Institute has always thrived to provide comprehensive and state-of-the-art clinical services for children in Bangladesh and I am proud to inform you that BSH&I is at the phase of expansion to other divisional cities in the country along with two more branches in Dhaka as per encouragement by the honourable Prime Minister of Bangladesh, Sheikh Hasina. However, in order to complete such a huge endeavour of developing and providing professional medical services for children countrywide, the hospital requires further financial support. We are humbly appealing for charitable assistance in the form of donations or grants to help us achieve our goal, which is also going to be a breakthrough in providing the service and need of better child healthcare in Bangladesh.
