LHD launches ‘Drive-thru’ blood sample collection unit

Lanka Hospitals Laboratories (LHD), a medical laboratory in Sri Lanka has launched Sri Lanka’s first ‘Drive-thru’ blood sample collection centre.

As a first in the country’s healthcare system, the sample collection process is located within the premises of Lanka Hospital and is capable of receiving a patient every 10 minutes, during the phase of its full scale operations.

The innovative and timely setup of the Drive-thru facility provides convenience to the patients by reducing their waiting-time for the overall sample collection process vehicle. Furthermore, this initiative facilitates Social Distancing. The Drive-thru sample collection unit deploys qualified skilled staff who are equipped with personal protective equipment, for the safety of the patient and staff.

Lanka Hospitals Diagnostics is the first Sri Lankan Laboratory to receive the American CAP (College of American Pathologists) Accreditation, in June 2017 and Re-accreditation in June 2019, which is solid proof for the unmatched high standards achieved by LHD for diagnostic accuracy, resulting in LHD being the most trusted laboratory network in the healthcare industry.

The Chairman and CEO of Indoscan (Pvt) Ltd., Ananda Samarasinghe who experienced the service thanked Lanka Hospitals Laboratories for this timely and innovative thinking. “It was an unusual, convenient and safe experience in the current context and very thoughtful from a patient’s point of view.”

LHD continues to be the pioneer medical laboratory testing provider. By establishing the Drive-thru concept in the country, LHD reiterates the fact that patients are its number one priority.

The Drive-Thru blood sample collection unit operates every day of the week for 10 hours between 7 am and 5 pm and the hours are expected to be increased in due course.
