Chairman’s Message

It is with great honor that I write this message to our loyal customers. 22 years ago, myself and a motivated group of individuals embarked on the venture of laying the foundation to Ruhunu Hospital.

Our sheer determination and hard work over the years has helped us to become one of the best Health Care Providers in the Southern Province. We are certain that the vision we shared will be carried by our knowledgeable and dedicated second generation that will take this venture to greater heights. Product, Staff and Customers are the three pillars on which the success of our Hospital rest on and these virtues have made us what we are today. My vision is to continuously being the best healthcare provider in the Southern Province and also to make Ruhunu Hospital as a benchmark company as a leading private sector organization of high ethics and values.

We expanded our Hospital by opening a new wing which comprises of new channel rooms and luxury rooms, a Sperm Bank and the first Dialysis Unit owned by the private sector within the Southern Province. The latest addition to our business is a 64 slice CT scanner, two brand new Operation Theaters and we have also launched a Laboratory under the name of Ruhunu Hospital Diagnostics with the latest technology and qualified workforce to provide quality and reliable diagnostic services to you.

Further, as we look to the years ahead, we are hoping to expand our services with the modern technology and to remain committed to excellence. I would like to thank you for being with us for past 2 decades and we are certain that you will continue to avail our premium healthcare services for years to come.
