He­mas hos­pi­tal Tha­lawathugoda now of­fers day surgery pack­ages

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - BUSINESS NEWS -

Spear­head­ing a revo­lu­tion in the health sec­tor in Sri Lanka, He­mas Hos­pi­tal Tha­lawathugoda has in­tro­duced a new af­ford­able day surgery ser­vice for a wide range of pro­ce­dures.

Day surgery is a rel­a­tively new con­cept to Sri Lanka and He­mas Hos­pi­tal Tha­lawathugoda takes pride in be­ing one of the first hos­pi­tals out of Colombo to avail these new so­lu­tions to pa­tients with a back­ing of a full-time panel of spe­cial­ist doc­tors.

Out­pa­tient or day surgery is a con­ve­nient ar­range­ment which is typ­i­cally easier on the pocket be­cause pa­tients are not re­quired to pay room charges or any­thing in ad­di­tion to con­sul­tant fees and stan­dard hos­pi­tal charges for pro­ce­dures and tests at the end of the stay, which makes day surg­eries af­ford­able to many pa­tients.

Day surgery op­tion is rec­om­mended for pro­ce­dures like herniotomy, hy­dro­c­elec­tomy, ex­ci­sion of lumps and ab­scess, ureteroscopy, renoscopy, laser lithotripsy, and blad­der tu­mour re­sec­tion, in­clud­ing key­hole surg­eries which do not re­quire cut-open­ing or blood trans­fu­sions. He­mas Hos­pi­tal Tha­lawathugoda has the lat­est sta­teof-the-art equip­ment and ex­per­tise to en­sure op­ti­mum clin­i­cal out­comes and faster re­cov­ery.

Com­ment­ing on the ben­e­fits of day surgery, Res­i­dent Con­sul­tant Sur­geon at­tached to He­mas Hos­pi­tal Tha­lawathugoda Dr. Indika Ra­manayaka said: “There are many ben­e­fits of day surgery. Day surgery is af­ford­able be­cause pro­longed hos­pi­tal stay isn’t re­quired as the hos­pi­tal has a panel of in-house sur­geons, avail­able 24/7, which elim­i­nates the need for stay­ing in ‘wait­ing lists’.

“Once the pa­tient de­cides to go for the surgery, ev­ery­thing there­after – from mak­ing ap­point­ments to han­dling records and li­ais­ing with nurs­ing staff and doc­tors – will be man­aged by a ded­i­cated sur­gi­cal co­or­di­na­tor mak­ing the hos­pi­tal stay a con­ve­nient and pleas­ant ex­pe­ri­ence.”

He­mas Hos­pi­tals (Pvt.) Ltd is a sub­sidiary of He­mas Group, a lead­ing Sri Lankan con­glom­er­ate that has busi­ness in­ter­ests in four key sec­tors – FMCG, Health care, Trans­porta­tion, Leisure and Strate­gic In­vest­ments. The multi-spe­cialty hos­pi­tal chain com­prises of three fullser­vice hos­pi­tals at Wat­tala, Galle and Tha­lawathugoda along with 34 fully equipped lab­o­ra­to­ries and pro­vides com­mu­nity-based ex­pert health care ser­vices by po­si­tion­ing its chain of hos­pi­tals in strate­gic lo­ca­tions out­side the com­mer­cial hub of Colombo.
