Brigadier General SM Humayun Kabir said that Stroke Ward patients will get better medical care. After the Neuroscience Institute in Dhaka, this unit was officially launched in CMC Hospital in Bangladesh. Due to lack of space in the neurology ward, patients often have to be admitted on the verandah. It was inhumane but we had nothing to do. Attempts will be made to increase the number of beds in this ward day by day.
It is learned that now the unit will be run with the manpower of the neurology department of the hospital and some other departments. The increasing the beds, manpower will also be recruited. This unit has been named after Dr Md Wahidur Rahman, a student of the hospital who was died in a road accident.
