Square is an organization with equal emphasis on leadership, technology, quality and passion. It believes in continuous innovation and progress. Its endeavor is to bring the best minds together in a uniquely rich and stimulating environment.

Square drives for excellence; the urge to never stand still, to never slow down and to never stop thinking. Square is a corporate giant active in divergent business and industrial fields. Its present unassailable status is the outcome of its successful diversification. Square holds a very strong position as a business leader in this country, and have earned trusted brand image to the people of Bangladesh.

When asked Mr. Samason H Chowdhury, why the name SQUARE was chosen, he remembered - "We named it SQUARE because it was started by four friends and also because it signifies accuracy and perfection meaning quality"

A token of gratitude to the nation

Sixty years of hard work and commitment have brought us where we are today. We are keenly aware of our responsibility as the most respected business organization of the country. Our relentless effort is to make Square Hospital worthy of nation's trust and confidence. While many Bangladeshis are going abroad to seek quality healthcare services at a cost of valuable foreign currency, SHL is contributing to reduce this outflow.
