Extending its portfolio of exceptional healthcare offerings, leading private healthcare provider Hemas Hospitals recently introduced a state-of-the-art, spacious primary care centreto the residents of Negombo.
The new OPD offers comprehensive and affordable preventative and curative care solutions in one place through a highly-skilled, experienced team of consultants and nursing staff – a first in the region. It is located atNo. 130/2/2, Colombo Road, Negombo (Opposite the Negombo District Hospital), in conjunction to the Hemas Laboratory.
The grand opening, held with strict regard to the regulations imposed by the government health authorities, saw the participation of Hemas Hospitals and Laboratory Chain Chairman Murtaza Esufally, Director/General Manager Dr. Lasantha Karunasekera, Hemas Hospitals Director Laboratories Dr. Chamila Ariyananda, and General Manager Marketing Hemas Hospitals Nishantha Jayamanne.
Geared with the latest technology and equipment, the Hemas Primary Care Centre’s unique offering enables patients to channel and consult a wide selectionof specialist consultants as well as screen and maintain overall wellbeing with an on-premise wellness centre – SuwathaPiyasa. Constructed at the Hemas Laboratory building in Negombo, which is fitted with the latest advanced screening technology, patients can also benefit from the efficient and comprehensive lab facilities available here.
“OPD centres are designed to deliver the right care, in the right place, at the right time, which is a vital capability to have in a community such as Negombo, with a rising burden of non-communicable diseases. Our primary goal for this new initiative is to therefore foster a culture where paying attention to and maintaining good health becomes a daily habit, which will reduce the massive impact NCDs have on both our communities and government healthcare system. As Sri Lanka’s most accredited private healthcare provider, it is our duty to enable this critical requirement. We believe that our new centre in Negombo fulfills this vision, and will have significant positive impact on the people in this region, because they are now able to have their healthcare needs met closer to home, with the help of our dedicated, skilled team of consultants and staff resident here,” Hemas Hospitals Managing Director and President of the Association of Private Hospitals and Nursing Homes Dr. Lakith Peiris opined.
