“The comprehensive re-development includes the expansion of in-patient beds, two state-of-the-art channeling centres, 27 well-equipped channeling rooms, an eye surgery centre, in-house emergency ambulance services, and specialized children’s wards, all facilities spanning across four floors,” said Director and CEO, Sunil De Silva.

In addition, there is also a substantial increase in specialist and resident doctors to a total of 45.
