Pan­nip­i­tiya Pri­vate Hospi­tal ex­pands dial­y­sis ser­vices

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - NEWS/HEALTHCARE -

The pre­mier pri­vate hospi­tal in Sri Lanka, Pan­nip­i­tiya Pri­vate Hospi­tal has mod­ernised its dial­y­sis unit en­abling more pa­tients to re­ceive dial­y­sis treat­ment.

There­fore, re­nal pa­tients could ob­tain dial­y­sis treat­ment for a price un­par­al­lel to other hos­pi­tals un­der the su­per­vi­sion of spe­cial­ist doc­tors and the care of ex­pe­ri­enced staff, Chair­man and Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Dr. Ananda Ku­rup­puarachchi said.

“To­day, re­nal dis­eases have be­come com­mon among Sri Lankan peo­ple. Blood dial­y­sis is a vi­tal ne­ces­sity to save the lives of pa­tients with kid­ney fail­ure. Recog­nis­ing the sig­nif­i­cance of this, we have taken mea­sures to mod­ernise the dial­y­sis unit and add more dial­y­sis units to the unit. Now we are ca­pa­ble of con­duct­ing dial­y­sis to six pa­tients si­mul­ta­ne­ously. We are well aware that some pa­tients find it is dif­fi­cult to af­ford such treat­ment. That is why we have de­cided to of­fer dial­y­sis treat­ment for such a min­i­mum pos­si­ble rate of­fered by a pri­vate hospi­tal in Sri Lanka. By of­fer­ing dial­y­sis treat­ment for such a con­ces­sion­ary rate, the hospi­tal re­ceives no profit. There­fore, this could also be con­sid­ered as an­other cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity ex­er­cise of Pan­nip­i­tiya Pri­vate Hospi­tal,” Dr. Ku­rup­puarachchi fur­ther added.

In ad­di­tion, Pan­nip­i­tiya Pri­vate Hospi­tal has also in­tro­duced sev­eral high-tech health med­i­cal tests to the pub­lic. Health checks for those over 40 years, tests for heart, di­a­betic check tests, med­i­cal tests for se­nior cit­i­zens, pre­mar­i­tal tests, tests for joint pains and swellings in joints and teen checks are some of the new in­no­va­tions of­fered to pa­tients..

Pan­nip­i­tiya Pri­vate Hospi­tal is the first hospi­tal to ob­tain ISO 9001-2008 cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for all func­tions in the hospi­tal and the OHSAS 180012007 in­ter­na­tional cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for se­cu­rity of the hospi­tal staff and has also re­ceived sev­eral lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional ac­co­lades to its name.

Pan­nip­i­tiya Pri­vate Hospi­tal is also renowned for in­tro­duc­ing hi-tech tests such as 5D ul­tra sound and other hi-tech med­i­cal tests for the first time to Sri Lanka.
