A group of prominent doctors conceived united Hospital in mid 80s under the name of Continental Hospital. Although some progress in the construction was made by early 90s, the dream of the initiators remained unfulfilled until 2004 when United Group stepped in and took the responsibility of completing the project that had been waiting to see daylight for 16 years. On 24 August 2006, United Hospital was inaugurated as a multidisciplinary 450-bed capacity, spread over a total area of about 450,000 sft., healthcare service provider for millions of people of Bangladesh. Since its opening and most of 2007 was devoted to building up each department slowly and gradually. The year 2008 was the first full year of operation of United Hospital, in real sense. In 2009, it has been able to include most of the services & department that a multi-disciplinary hospital should have. The Accident and Emergency Department of United Hospital is a 24-hour, full time section and it is the mirror of United Hospital. It offers the highest degree of commitment to delivering quality and efficient emergency care. Prompt and rapid response of our skilled medical personnel defines our Accident & Emergency Unit. This is where very critically ill and injured patients are received and managed. This department is run by a dedicated team of health care professionals comprising of 11 Emergency Medical Officers and 21 nursing personnel (sisters/brothers/paramedic/aid nurse) along with 10 Patient Care Attendants (PCA) all of whom work round the clock. The unit is well equipped with 14 observation beds, 1 O.T./procedure room and all sorts of modern equipment for treating critical and trauma patients. Specialty rooms are maintained to handle cases of cardiovascular illness, trauma, orthopedic injuries and pediatric patients. Specially trained emergency nurses experienced in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) work side by side with our physicians. We have four ambulances out of which two are dedicated for cardiac patients. Specialist, Nurse, PCA always accompanies the Cardiac Ambulance; Nurse, PCA always accompanies The Normal Ambulance.
