Sri Lanka’s lead­ing pri­vate health­care provider He­mas Hos­pi­tals an­nounced its part­ner­ship with Ma­ni­pal Global Ed­u­ca­tion Ser­vices (MAGE) in In­dia, with an aim to strengthen and raise the stan­dards and skills of their nurs­ing staff.

The land­mark part­ner­ship was es­tab­lished through a MOU (Mem­o­ran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing) which was signed by He­mas Hos­pi­tals Group Manag­ing Di­rec­tor Dr. Lakith Peiris and Ma­ni­pal Pro­fes­sional Learn­ing (Prolearn) Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer A.P. Ram­ab­had­ran in the pres­ence of sev­eral se­nior of­fi­cials from both or­gan­i­sa­tions.

As per the un­der­stand­ing, He­mas Hos­pi­tals will send their nurs­ing staff in batches to the Ma­ni­pal Hospi­tal in Ban­ga­lore for a 14-day hands-on, ad­vanced train­ing in­ter­ven­tion. The pro­gramme will fo­cus on ed­u­cat­ing nurses on dif­fer­ent ad­vanced spe­cial­ties in­clud­ing neu­ro­sciences, or­tho­pe­dics and In Vitro Fer­til­iza­tion (IVF) in line with He­mas Hos­pi­tals’ plans on build­ing ca­pa­bil­ity and ex­pand­ing its clin­i­cal pro­grammes to su­per-spe­cialised ar­eas in gas­troen­terol­ogy, neu­rol­ogy, urol­ogy, cos­met­ics, and sub­fer­til­ity.

Speak­ing on the oc­ca­sion, He­mas Hos­pi­tals Group Manag­ing Di­rec­tor Dr. Lakith Peiris said: “Be­ing the first hospi­tal chain in Sri Lanka to ob­tain an in­ter­na­tional ac­cred­i­ta­tion with the pres­ti­gious ACHSI ac­cred­i­ta­tion, He­mas Hos­pi­tals is com­mit­ted to con­tin­u­ously de­liver world class health­care with ex­cel­lent clin­i­cal out­comes and pa­tient safety. Hence, con­tin­u­ous devel­op­ment of our clin­i­cal staff is an in­te­gral part of our jour­ney towards ex­cel­lence.”

“Our part­ner­ship with Ma­ni­pal Global Ed­u­ca­tion Ser­vices is a step in this di­rec­tion where we up­scale the stan­dards of our nurs­ing staff with new skills, knowl­edge and best in class global prac­tices. We are im­mensely proud to part­ner with MAGE in our con­tin­u­ous jour­ney in set­ting a bench­mark in pa­tient man­age­ment, co­or­di­nated care and pa­tient safety in Sri Lanka,” Dr. Lakith fur­ther stated.

Also speak­ing on the oc­ca­sion, Ma­ni­pal Prolearn CEO A.P. Ram­ab­had­ran said: “We are more than happy to have tied up with He­mas Hos­pi­tals for pro­vid­ing ad­vanced pro­fes­sional train­ing to their ex­ist­ing work­force in or­der to in­crease their over­all ef­fi­ciency and pro­duc­tiv­ity. Pro­fes­sional train­ing is imperative in to­day’s time to re­main rel­e­vant in the in­dus­try and Ma­ni­pal Prolearn purely aims at pro­vid­ing the re­quired core com­pe­ten­cies to its clients.”

“This pro­gramme is not only sig­nif­i­cant be­cause we formed our first part­ner­ship in Sri Lanka, but also of the fact that it marks a great de­gree of col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Ma­ni­pal Hospi­tal, Ma­ni­pal Academy of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion and the MAGE teams, en­sur­ing that He­mas Hos­pi­tals can lever­age the en­tire strength of the Ma­ni­pal Ed­u­ca­tion and Med­i­cal Group,” Ram­ab­had­ran added.
