Med1, a healthcare development company commenced operations this year to provide professional and comprehensive emergency healthcare services to Sri Lanka. Having already launched Sri Lanka’s first internationally accredited emergency medical training institute, Med1 has now chosen Mount Lavinia Hotel as their lead partner in the hospitality industry to establish best practices for hotels and tourism.
 In the words of Managing Director and CEO of Med1, Donnie Woodyard Jr, “Properly trained first responders often are the difference between life and death in a medical emergency.

It is essential to develop the confidence, knowledge and skills required to respond immediately in the case of a medical emergency. We are very pleased that Mt. Lavinia is the first hotel in Sri Lanka to institute international standards for health and safety in a medical emergency. Internationally accredited First Aid and CPR courses require 16 hours of training with an emphasis on hands-on skill practice.

With a rise in tourism expected in Sri Lanka, Mount Lavinia Hotel is the first hotel to objectively commit to meeting the expectations of international clients in the area of health and safety in a medical emergency emergencies are also in the pipeline.
