New medical care facility for Lankan patients

Care Sri Lanka (Pvt) Ltd. and Columbia Asia Hospitals, an international health care provider from India together with Comfort, recently launched – what they call - the first ever total medical care service in Colombo.

“This venture will facilitate anyone in need of medical care with the total package from consultation to post operative care,” said Chairman, Comfort Care Sri Lanka (Pvt) Ltd Manilal Fernando. He told the Business Times that ‘the primary reason to go into this type of business is that I saw a dire need for affordable quality health care service here.’

He said the most severely affected are those who cannot afford to go to countries like the USA, Europe or Singapore for treatment. “We can provide the same quality service for around a quarter of the price charged in Singapore or Europe. Now we can provide the same quality of treatment if not better by taking the patient to India.”

The company in its scope of service will handle the patient from the point of consultation and diagnosis to post operative care. It will provide free conference calls between the local doctor and his counterpart in India along with all medical reports being made available to both parties for discussion.

The package offered to the patient will include hospital identification, insurance assistance, doctor on call, visa, airline tickets, arranging affordable accommodation, the services of an interpreter, a mobile phone, post treatment packages, emergency evacuations, air ambulance service, online consultation service and web based patient and on completion of the treatment bringing the patient back and the follow up treatment.

Speaking at the occasion, Chairman and group Medical Director, Columbia Asia Hospitals (Pvt.) Ltd Dr. Nandakumar Jairam said, “Our hospitals are equipped with the very latest in medical equipment. This is a major advantage in accurate diagnosis and treatment of diseases”. We have also partnered with several other leading medical establishments in India such as Manipal Health systems, Apollo Hospitals, Max Healthcate Fortis Hospitals Sure fertility and Narayana Hrudayalaya Hospitals which make appropriate patient placement possible.”
