Lanka Hospitals’ staff contributes over Rs. 6.7 mn to National COVID-19 Fund

Lanka Hospitals, the internationally accredited multiple award-winning healthcare provider made a donation of over 6.7 million rupees to the National COVID-19 Healthcare and Social Security Fund under the guidance of Lanka Hospitals Group Chairman Dr. Bandula Wijesiriwardane. The contribution was generously made by the Chairman, Board of Directors, Consultants and employees of Lanka Hospitals to collectively support the fight against the novel Coronavirus. The fund was established by the government last month to support the healthcare system and all others in the frontlines who are working towards combating COVID-19 in Sri Lanka.

“Sri Lanka along with the rest of the world is currently experiencing one of the most challenging times of our lives due to the global spread of COVID-19. Therefore we believe that it is our responsibility to provide the maximum support to our country during this time. Doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers throughout the country have stepped up to the forefront to combat the virus, and without their unwavering dedication we would not be able to reach normalcy again. Therefore with immense pride and gratitude the staff of Lanka Hospitals has chosen to make its own contribution to the National COVID-19 Healthcare and Social Security Fund,” Lanka Hospitals Acting Group CEO and Director Medical Services, Dr. Wimal Karandagoda stated.

Lanka Hospitals is the first hospital in Sri Lanka to be awarded some of the most prestigious accreditations in the world for its healthcare service standards including the Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation 6th edition, and the world respected Medical Tourism Certification from the Medical Travel Quality Alliance (MTQUA). Furthermore, Lanka Hospitals Diagnostics (LHD) is the only Sri Lankan laboratory to be accredited by the prestigious laboratory accreditation body, The College of American Pathologists (CAP).
