Rs. 1 b, 50-bed, multi-speciality:
Hemas Hospital in Thalawathugoda by 2013
Hemas has commenced construction of its third multi-speciality
hospital in Thalawathugoda at a cost of over Rs. 1 billion. Occupying
one acre of prime land on the major arterial road in Thalawathugoda, the
50-bed hospital will serve the community around the Thalawathugoda,
Battaramulla, Pannipitiya and surrounding areas. The project is to be
completed by mid 2013.
Equipped with a 24-hour emergency unit, MRI, CT facilities, a modern
laboratory, an ICU, a radiology centre along with specialised operating
theatres and labour rooms, the new Hemas Hospital Thalawathugoda will
offer the estimated 300,000 strong population living in close proximity
to Thalawathugoda, the finest in medical facilities. In keeping with its
vision of providing the best services, this new enterprise will be fully
equipped to handle general surgery, internal medicine, paediatrics,
gynaecology as well as emergency & ICU services for critically ill
patients. In addition, the best Specialists and Consultants and the
finest nursing and clinical staff will be on hand to offer patients the
best in medical treatment.
Linus Jeganathan, Director of the Project, said "Thalawathugoda is a
rapidly developing suburban area where many people have chosen to live.
With this fast growing population, a multi-speciality private hospital
in the area has thus become a necessity. With this in mind, a
sustainable model has been followed in the hospital design to blend in
well with the surrounding area. Our hospital design has been inspired by
some of the best international hospitals."
Hemas Hospital Wattala is the Group's flagship hospital. It is also
Sri Lanka's first internationally accredited multi-specialty hospital
chain. This 100-bed state-of-the-art hospital is built to international
standards in order to offer the highest levels of medical care to its
patients. The 50 bed Hemas Southern Hospital, which is located in the
Galle Town, is one of the more popular private hospitals in the area
offering some of the best health care facilities in the southern region.
Chairman Hemas Hospitals Murtaza Esufally said, "Our aim is to
provide affordable and high quality health care to the community while
introducing international standards to the industry. We believe that the
private sector has a key role to play in the industry to reduce the
burden of the public sector. Hemas Hospital Thalawathugoda will also
create many job opportunities and complement the on-going development
that is taking place in the area"
