Less vehicle stress at Durdans Hospital as new car park opens

13 September 2017 - 184   - 0


A problem faced in many hospitals, parking for patients and their families is one of the biggest challenges in Sri Lanka’s private health sector.

While Nawaloka Hospital is investing in a new car park building, which is under construction, Durdans Hospital on Wednesday announced that it has opened its new purpose-built car park building to the public, which will be accessible via Alfred Place, adjoining R.A.De Mel Mawatha.

The hospital company said the multi-storey, 22-split level car park building can accommodate approximately 200 parking slots, currently far more than any other hospital park.

The Rs. 1 billion investment project commenced in 2016, when it was revealed that more than 700,000 patients were using the hospital annually. Even more importantly, the car park building will free up the old parking areas for development, the company said. 

At the official opening ceremony, Ajith Tudawe, Executive Chairman of Ceylon Hospitals PLC, said: “We are delighted that the long overdue limiting factor of a purpose-built car park building at Durdans Hospital has now been addressed. It will bring real benefits to the hospital and our valued clientele and prospective customers, not only in terms of improving visitor parking on site, but also because it enhances our service delivery.”
