National Professor and cardiologist Brig (retd) Abdul Malik, and kidney specialist Prof Harun-ur Rashid were given lifetime achievement awards yesterday for their contributions to health service.
Sahera-Hasan Memorial Trust accorded the reception to them, marking 20 years of Sahera-Hasan Memorial Hospital.
Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain and Chairman of the Hospital Trust Prof Dr Rowshan Ara Begum handed over crests to them at the award ceremony on the hospital premises.
As Dr Abdul Malik was ill, his daughter Dr Fazilatun Nesa Malik and son-in-law Dr Khondaker Abdul Awal Rizvi received the crest on his behalf.
Dr Rowshan Ara Begum and her siblings established Sahera-Hasan Memorial Hospital 20 years ago named after their parents -- Mir Hasan Ali and Sahera Khatun -- to provide treatment to the disadvantaged.
Several doctors at the hospital dedicated themselves to the welfare of patients.
