Background of RCH

The ancient city Pundro Bordnan from Mongolian civilization is now named as Bogra. Bogra is famous for the monument of Mohasthan Gor in Bangladesh. All of the Government Hospital and the private clinics are in the southern part of Bogra town. The distressed and poor villagers were suffering form illness and they were deprived of taking treatment from the mentioned Health Centers. From these feelings Professor Dr. Hosne-Ara Begum the Executive Director of TMSS established the Rafatullah Community Hospital (RCH) in the middle place of Mohasthan Gor and the Bogra town at Thangemara village in 1994. It is mentionable here that Late Mr. Rafatullah Zamindar had a dream to establish a Hospital for the poor people. To materilize the dream his next generation donated 08 acres of land to TMSS for establishing this hospital. As recognition of their donation the hospital has been named as Rafatullah Community Hospital (CH).

At first it was established as a 10 bed hospital. Now RCH is a 750 bedded hospital and affiliated by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare of the Government of Peoples Republic of Bangladesh.
