Health Desk- 22 August 2020: The Department of Environment (DoE) in Chattogram has suspended environmental clearance certificates of 26 hospitals and 12 diagnostic centres for not having updated license from the Directorate General of Health Services.

The hospitals and diagnostic centres have been operating for the last two to four years without DGHS license, according to DoE.

Mohammad Nurullah Nuri, director of DoE Chattogram (Metro), told media that they issued letters to all diagnostic centres and private hospitals asking them to appear at DoE with updated DGHS certificate to renew their Environment Clearance Certificate (ECC).

Sheikh Fazle Rabbi, civil surgeon of Chattogram said, sometimes the application filed by hospitals and diagnostic centres gets stuck at DGHS for many reasons.
