Lanka Hospitals PLC, the internationally accredited, multi award-winning healthcare provider, launched its first Medical and Channelling Centre in Galle recently. The centre is the first of its kind to be established by Lanka Hospitals in Sri Lanka. 

The centre offers multiple services to provide many healthcare needs such as specialist consultations, direct e-channelling appointments, general medicine, primary care facilities, vaccine and immunisation facilities, laboratory services, pharmacy and a fleet of ambulance services for medical emergencies. 

“Lanka Hospitals is proud to launch a medical centre in Galle and to establish its presence in the Southern province. Since the hospital’s inception in 2002, Lanka Hospitals has expanded its reach in Sri Lanka with 21 sample collection centres for its laboratory network in addition to a regional laboratory in Kandy and three mini laboratories, 16 pharmacies, four corporate affiliations and partnerships with other like-minded stakeholders that have enabled us to position ourselves as one of the best private hospitals in Sri Lanka. Our presence in Galle is expected to be the first out of many more new initiatives which we intend to embark on in our efforts to expand our countrywide network in future,” Lanka Hospitals Group Chief Executive Officer Dr. Prasad Medawatte stated. 

Lanka Hospitals is an internationally accredited, multi award-winning hospital and is the first hospital in Sri Lanka to be awarded some of the most prestigious accreditations in the world for its healthcare service standards. 

Lanka Hospitals has retained the Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation since 2014, and currently holds the world respected Medical Tourism Certification from the Medical Travel Quality Alliance (MTQUA), for the hospitals’ gold standard in global healthcare.  Furthermore, Lanka Hospitals Diagnostics (LHD) is the only Sri Lankan laboratory to be accredited with the CAP certification by the prestigious laboratory accreditation body, College of American Pathologists.
