Durdans new hospital to open by end 2009
Durdans Hospital, coming under the umbrella of Ceylon Hospitals PLC (CHPLC)
will open the new Durdans Medical and Surgical Hospital adjacent to
Durdans Hospital in the last quarter of 2009, adding impressive force to
a rapidly expanding healthcare industry in the country.
Under Phase II of the Group's Development Program, Durdans Hospital
and Sri Lanka's first dedicated cardiac care facility, the Durdans Heart
Centre are also billed to expand its portfolio of services and
infrastructure, adding to capacity, competencies and capabilities.
One of the primary objectives of the expansion plan is to tap into
the increasing segment of medical tourism seen within the Asian region,
which, with its pioneering innovations and modern medical technology,
Durdans is extremely confident it can cater to.
With an investment of Rs 2 billion infused into the Phase II
Development Program, CHPLC Chairman Ajith Tudawe said that having
anticipated the increasing demand for competent healthcare services in
Sri Lanka, Durdans embarked on a strategic development program
positioned as a BOI venture, to bridge the gap that existed between the
demand and supply of these services.
"Being exposed to global trends, Sri Lankans are conscious about what
healthcare can give them and they are rightly discerning and demanding
of the services available to them.
