Most of the specialized Hospitals of Bangladesh are located near-by to this. And it is the birthplace of many of those; Center for control of Rheumatic fever and heart diseases (CRF & HD), NICVD, NIO, NIMD and NITOR. Chronological Steps of Advancement  In July 1963- The initial scheme to establish a 200 bedded general hospital was proposed.

Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman re-named this hospital after the name of great patriotic and legend of democracy of this land, late Huseyn Shaheed Suhrawardy as ‘Shaheed Suhrawardy Hospital’ and sanctioned 75 indoor beds with outpatient Service.  In 1983- An extension project profile was submitted for 500- bedded hospital to be completed within 3 years. But this expansion project was delayed due to beauracratic hazards; it was re-planned for 300 indoor beds in the first phase to be further extended in subsequent phases. Later Bangladesh Government & IOC signed an agreement to complete this project with 375-bedded indoor facilities as well as pathology, radiology and causality service.  In 1997- 2nd December, with new decoration and extended indoor facilities, then honorable prime minister,Sheikh Hasina inaugurated three storied new extension building behind outdoor. And this time, this hospital’s indoor service was upgraded in large scale (with major medical departments) to accommodate all types of patients.  In 2005 - 4th October: A meeting of planning committee of MOH & FW primarily decided to establish a new medical College in the Shaheed Suhrawardy Hospital premises, and admit 100 students for MBBS course for 2005- 2006 academic session. shaheed     Suhrawardy Medical College Hospital: History of Advancement – Written and edited by–Dr.Md Nazrul Islam-MBBS, Engineering).
