In a concerted effort to bring quality healthcare and diagnostic services nearer to patients, leading private hospital chain Hemas Hospitals recently extended its mobile laboratory services to all citizens in Colombo 01 – 15 for free for the first time in Sri Lanka, waiving off all transport and logistic charges that usually apply.
The exclusive service will enable patients to safely dispense samples to test for a vast portfolio of medical conditions, for the same affordable prices they have to pay when visiting a lab.
“Laboratory testing is a crucial part in the detection, diagnosis and treatment of patients. However, with the numerous restrictions imposed by the ongoing pandemic, many patients are greatly challenged and hesitant in making a visit to a laboratory to get thesevital diagnostic tests done. This is especially true for the elderly, the pregnant, new mothers and infants, bed ridden patients and even those who find it difficult to visit a lab due to their hectic schedules. Therefore, it is for the benefit of these patients, that Hemas Labs is introducing our mobile lab services to those within Colombo, at affordable rates that are completely free of any transport costs. Our highly skilled and professional team of phlebotomists are fully geared and trained to handle patients of all ages and health levels, safely in a completely discreet manner,” remarked Dr. Dhushyanthan Subramaniam, General Manager Hemas Hospitals Laboratory Services.
All reports generated after sample testing are delivered digitally through the Hemas Labs online portal, enabling patients to maintain all their health records on one easily accessible platform, which allows both themselves and their healthcare providers to monitor their wellbeing trends for more accurate diagnostics. For all those who require physical lab reports, Hemas Labs operates an efficient chain of couriers capable of delivering these reportsdirect to patient homes upon request, at no extra cost to enhance convenience. Patients canmake their payments using direct cash payments, card payments or online transfers.
Appointments for the Hemas mobile lab can be made by calling 0766553030, a day prior to the requirement. Special priority will also be given to those with medical emergencies such as dengue.
