Sri Lanka’s pioneer in premium private healthcare, Nawaloka Hospital PLC set another benchmark in the country’s health sector by opening its dedicated ‘Specialist Centre’ for

channelling and medical services which brings together over 500 consultants from various disciplines under the same roof. 

The Specialist Centre built with an investment of Rs. 5 billion, as the fourth phase of the hospital’s expansion since inception over three decades ago, comprises a multi-storey parking facility which can accommodate up to 600 cars, a supermarket, the entire spectrum of laboratory and diagnostic services, multiple pharmacies, a bank, a cafeteria and ample open spaces offering patients and their families a pleasant, convenient experience. 

Spread across 400,000 square feet of floor space, the new Specialist Centre of the Nawaloka Hospitals becomes the first in the country to introduce modular channelling and consultation rooms that have been designed impeccably with the ultimate customer in mind; serving to offer a calm, homely atmosphere different from the typical hospital setup.  

The complex is seamlessly integrated with the hospital’s existing buildings through multiple connecting corridors. The environmentally-friendly building has numerous energy saving features that reduces its carbon footprint considerably.

The ground floor of the hospital features a spacious lobby area, a VIP lounge with high speed Wi-Fi and cable TV, a Corporate Counter to provide corporate clients a more efficient and hassle-free service and gives easy access to the channelling counter, the state-of-the-art laboratory, radiology unit and Cafeteria – Cafe 77—which provides customers with healthy meal options from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. 

The first floor has consultation chambers dedicated for cardiology, gynaecology, endocrinology and foot care while the paediatricians, physicians, neurologists and EMG Room are on the second floor. Urology, Nephrology and Oncology, Vascular, Eye Surgeon, Ophthalmology Unit, Dermatology and Plastic, Cosmetic Centre, Audiology Unit, ENT Surgeon, Pain Management, Dementia and Autism Clinic, Serene Centre and Lasik Centre are on the ninth floor. All consultation chambers are spread across three floors including individual pharmacies and direct access to the car park for added convenience.

This new addition which was declared open by the President last 12 December is a fulfilment of the hospital’s pledge to promote a healthy Sri Lanka by making world-class healthcare facilities and service accessible and available to everybody at affordable rates.
