Porsha Upazila Health Complex in Naogaon
The Porsha Upazila Health Complex in Naogaon was built in 1970. Initially, it had 31 beds but it was increased to 50 in 2011. The hospital has vacancies for seven posts – Junior Consultant (Medicine), Surgery, Pediatrics, Gynecology, Ophthalmology, Residential Medical Officer and Assistant Surgeon. The entire health service is being carried out by only five people including a health officer, a dental surgeon and an ayurvedic doctor.
Although the manpower is low, the health officer Dr. Mahbub Hasan is continuing to try to increase the quality of treatment. With his efforts, the poor are getting benefits by increasing the quality of treatment.
Meanwhile, Dr. Mahbub Hasan said the quality would increase further if the seven vacant posts were filled. The hospital has to see 100-150 patients outdoors and 35-40 patients indoors every day.
“I am trying to give proper treatment to the patients who come to the hospital. Other doctors are also helping me in this work. However, if the number of doctors increases, the quality of service will increase,” Upazila Health Officer Dr. Mahbub Hasan said.
He said he built a “flower garden” in front of the hospital, constructed a boundary wall, modernizing the conference room, inter-departmental vision, reception desk, developing the health officer’s office, complex gate – after he joined here.
Besides, with the efforts of Food Minister Sadhan Chandra Majumdar, various development works including central oxygen supply, AC system, garage construction are underway, added Dr. Mahbub Hasan.
