BSMMU or Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University is the highest Medical Facility in Bangladesh. It is the only Postgraduate Institution in Bangladesh. It was previously known as PG Hospital or Postgraduate Medical Research (IPGMR) which was established in December 1965. It was converted into a Medical University for expanding the facilities for higher medical education and research in the country. PG Hospital is situated in the vital location of the capital known as Shahbag. BSMMU complex has five main multistoried buildings that are identified as Block-A,Block-B,Block-C, Block-D and Cabin block respectively. Follow the below link to know more about different block of BSMMU.
The present Vice Chancellor is Professor Dr. Kamrul Hasan Khan, Professor of Pathology. Prof. Pran Gopal was the most popular and dedicated VC of BSMMU. Recently he was retired from this post. He is also the Personal Doctor of the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
As it is the most sophisticated institution the pathological investigation reports are accepted all over the world. Also the cost is most reasonable. Investigations from private hospitals and clinics cost two or three times more than here. I have collected some list of available investigations and their cost.
Almost all the investigations are available here. Have look at the below link. There are lists of available investigations but the cost is not included. I have collected some money receipt from various departments.
Investigations service is open from 8 AM to 7 PM. It is located in the underground of New Buildings.

Popular Diagnostic center , Modern Diagnostic center are also popular. But the costs are nearly double than govt hospital.
Speaking casually, No doubt that those Privates Clinics and Diagnostic center are just money hungry crocodile. But they will provide some facility that you will not get in govt or semi govt institutions. As for example, you have to get in line for serial in PG hospital. That serial is quite long but not long compared to the cost. So for RICH people, Apollo, Labaid, Square, Popular Hospitals are best.
