The centre further provides laboratory and pharmaceutical services, telemedicine and e-consultation as well as fertility and maternity advisory services.

The Medical Centre in Seychelles also serves as a pivotal hub that provides referrals to Lanka Hospitals, especially when patients in Seychelles are required to undergo further medical procedures, in addition to performing follow ups on treatment and consultations.
