Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) has ordered to shut down the Uttara and Mirpur branches of the Regent Hospital in the capital, which has become a breeding ground for irregularities.
The order was issued on Tuesday evening.
Earlier, the Regent Hospital and the Regent Group’s head office were sealed off on several charges, including non-validity of the license and giving false reports of coronavirus tests without testing, told RAB executive magistrate Sarwar Alam the media.
A raid on the Regent Group's head office also found unauthorized test kits and several fake reports. For this, the head office of Regent Hospital and Regent Group has been sealed, said Sarwar Alam, adding, “The patients undergoing treatment at the hospital have been shifted to Kurmitola General Hospital.”
The chairman (Mohammad Shahed, chairman of Regent Group) used to control all these crimes and money while sitting in the office. Since these misdeeds took place from the Regent’s head office, it has been sealed. Besides, both the hospitals have been sealed by transferring the patients, he added.
