Private hospitals committed to provide safe health care services

17 January, 2021

The Association of Private Hospitals and Nursing Homes (APHNH), the apex body representing all private hospitals and nursing homes in the country, reassured patients and the public that member hospitals remain committed to providing access to safe healthcare services, despite challenges posed by the ongoing pandemic.

“Our Association and members are fully prepared and have enforced precautionary and safety measures recommended by local authorities and the World Health Organisation, to control and prevent the spread of the pandemic within hospital premises,” said APHNH Secretary Dr. Sunil Ratnapriya.

“While the country’s national health services are geared towards fighting the pandemic, private hospitals play a critical role in ensuring that all Sri Lankans continue to receive quality and timely access to essential health services and routine checks.

Some of the services that private hospitals continue to provide include elective surgeries, mobile laboratory services and online medicine delivery,” he said.
