Mobile financial service provider ‘Nagad’ signed an agreement with Kurmitola General Hospital enabling patients to pay all medical bills using this digital platform. Salary disbursements of class-4 contractual employees of the hospital and its other day-to-day transactions will also be made using ‘Nagad’.
