Pioneering private healthcare provider Nawaloka Hospitals recently announced that it has been reinstated as the PCR testing partner of the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Sri Lanka, from the 2nd August, 2021. As one of the leading PCR testing facilities in the private healthcare sector, Nawaloka Hospitals is now recommended as the First Choice for PCR and IgM antibody testing for Chinese passengers.
Nawaloka Hospitals operates a 24-hour sample collection center at its primary hospital in Colombo, with a guarantee of test results in 24 hours. A special discount scheme has also been introduced for airlines, travel agents, student migration companies and the foreign employment sector.
Further, in a bid to increase the accessibility of COVID-19 diagnostics to a large proportion of Sri Lankans, the hospital chain has extended the reach of its testing facilities, with island-wide sample collection centers in Negombo, Galle/Karapitiya, Wennapuwa, Weligama, Gampaha and Seeduwa.
Nawaloka Hospitals entered the state-dominated healthcare sector in 1985 as the first private hospital in Sri Lanka to offer tertiary healthcare services. Since then, under the visionary leadership of Dr. Jayantha Dharmadasa, the hospital has garnered considerable local and international recognition, pioneering numerous advanced clinical developments in the country. In 2020, Nawaloka Hospitals achieved the prestigious Joint Commission International’s (JCI) gold seal of approval for its continued compliance with internationally-recognized healthcare standards.
Nawaloka offers a 24-hour OPD centre, a state-of-the-art ETU facility, air and land medical evacuation services that include mobile ICUs and a home nursing unit offering professional in-home care services.
