The Founder of Nightingale Medical College & Hospital, Mr. Asaduzzaman Choudhury, a renowned social worker and a famous Engineer of Bangladesh had a long-cherished dream of serving the nation in health sector by providing the highest standard of cost-effective treatment facilities, patient-care & nursing. So to materialize this dream he built an institution “Nightingale Medical College & Hospital” that would serve the suffering humanity & ailing masses in one hand and produce quality doctors for the future generation on the other hand. To uphold the ideology of love & care for the suffering & ailing patients, serving them, helping them and curing them in his hospital with loving care, which is not far from the ideology of Florence Nightingale, Mr. Choudhury named the institution after her name as “Nightingale Medical College & Hospital.”
