Lanka Hospi­tal Di­ag­nos­tics launches state-ofthe-art med­i­cal lab­o­ra­tory in Kandy

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - FINANCE -

With as­tound­ing suc­cess and high­est qual­ity of their med­i­cal lab­o­ra­tory ser­vices in Colombo and suburbs, Lanka Hos­pi­tals Di­ag­nos­tics (LHD) re­cently launched their new­est lab test­ing fa­cil­ity at No.74, Old Per­adeniya Road, Kandy.

The project com­menced with the ob­jec­tive of meet­ing the med­i­cal lab­o­ra­tory re­quire­ments of the peo­ple in Kandy and the en­tire Cen­tral Prov­ince.

The city of Kandy was the se­lected lo­ca­tion be­cause of its ac­ces­si­bil­ity and its ex­pand­ing ap­peal for qual­ity Medi­care at­ten­tion. The grow­ing de­mand for a wider range of med­i­cal tests and fast di­ag­nos­tic ser­vices were also rea­sons in se­lect­ing the hill cap­i­tal.

As the only med­i­cal health lab­o­ra­tory in Sri Lanka to achieve the gold stan­dards of lab­o­ra­tory ac­cred­i­ta­tion in the world, Lanka Hos­pi­tals Di­ag­nos­tics (LHD) has been awarded the most pres­ti­gious qual­ity as­sur­ance recog­ni­tion from the Col­lege of Amer­i­can Pathol­o­gists (CAP), USA.

The newly opened state-ofthe-art med­i­cal lab­o­ra­tory, Lanka Hos­pi­tals Di­ag­nos­tics (LHD) is a repli­ca­tion of the well-re­spected lab­o­ra­tory ser­vices in Colombo and of­fers a record num­ber of 400 tests. This fa­cil­ity houses ul­tra-mod­ern qual­ity con­trolled equip­ment and qual­i­fied tech­ni­cians with highly ac­cu­rate au­to­mated test re­sult gen­er­a­tion.

Shar­ing his views, Lanka Hos­pi­tals Cor­po­ra­tion Pl­cgroup Chair­mandr. Sarath Paranavithana, who graced the event as the Chief Guest stated: “The open­ing of the new lab­o­ra­tory is the cul­mi­na­tion of a great ef­fort that we be­gan two years ago. In our quest to pro­vide un­matched lab­o­ra­tory ser­vices, we have spent well over Rs.80 mil­lion to es­tab­lish this state-of-the-art fa­cil­ity to the peo­ple of Kandy and suburbs, as we feel they too de­serve the best.”

The lab­o­ra­tory will pro­vide an in­te­grated web based re­port­ing, web down­load­ing and SMS alert ser­vice to the pa­tients; thereby pro­vid­ing con­ve­nience, sav­ing time and cost as well as an ef­fi­cient ser­vice in times of ur­gency.

“Since 2002, we have been on a clear mis­sion to be an in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised and na­tion­ally bench­marked health­care provider. To­day, we have achieved ex­cel­lence by of­fer­ing com­pre­hen­sive health care ser­vices to our fel­low cit­i­zens. LHD is in a rapid ex­pan­sion jour­ney and Lanka Hos­pi­tals Group in­tends to pro­vide its qual­ity ser­vices to the peo­ple out­side Colombo and thereby en­hance op­tions of med­i­cal fa­cil­i­ties for the pub­lic. We are proud to be in Kandy, and as­so­ciate with a grow­ing num­ber of part­ner­ships with both pub­lic and pri­vate hos­pi­tals and other med­i­cal in­sti­tu­tions,”lanka Hos­pi­tals Cor­po­ra­tion Pl­cgroup Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cerdr. Prasad Medawat­teadded.

Lhd­lab­o­ra­to­riesheaddr. Geethani Galago­da­said:“lhd has many firsts to its name and con­ducts nu­mer­ous tests that are not of­fered else­where. Com­pli­mented by the gold stan­dards of ac­cred­i­ta­tion, the cus­tomer-friend­li­ness, con­ve­nience and short turn­around time of LHD have sur­passed be­yond in­dus­try norms. Lanka Hos­pi­tals Di­ag­nos­tics (LHD) is on a par with the best lab­o­ra­to­ries in the world for its un­matched ac­cu­racy and qual­ity in lab­o­ra­tory test re­sults.”

With over 200 sam­ple col­lec­tion cen­tres spread­ing across Matale, Naula, Mahiyan­gane, Gam­pola, Ke­galle, Hat­ton and so forth, Lanka Hos­pi­tals Di­ag­nos­tics (LHD) in Kandy cov­ers a vast ge­og­ra­phy to ser­vice the med­i­cal needs of over 2.4 mil­lion peo­ple.

Med­i­cal care ser­vices stem­ming from di­ag­nos­tic in­ves­ti­ga­tion and sam­ple re­port­ing within a few hours are essen­tial for pa­tients who de­mand to have quick lab re­ports and ac­cu­rate re­port­ing for fur­ther treat­ment. As such, Lanka Hos­pi­tals Di­ag­nos­tics (LHD) is fo­cused on driv­ing sus­tain­able value cre­ation with the goal of be­ing the best med­i­cal ser­vices lab­o­ra­tory in the coun­try.
