Ruhunu Hospital Diagnostics, in its relentless pursuit of customer satisfaction and convenience, has proudly opened its latest state-of-the-art laboratory in Galle. Located at No.69 Wakwella Road, Galle, the laboratory adds to RHDs already considerable footprint in the Southern Province, where it serves as the primary medical hub for the region.

The new medical laboratory is also the first of its kind in the Southern Province to have gained the globally recognised ISO accreditation, placing it at the forefront of modern practices and cutting edge problem solving.

Indeed, ISO is not a tool merely to meet accreditation requirements, rather, by pursu-ing and implementing ISO benchmarks, RHD has showcased its desire to create sys-tems that are as failure resistant as possible, while simultaneously identifying opportunities for improvement at all times.

Speaking about this landmark achievement, Ruhunu Hospital Ltd. Co-CEOs Raveen-Wickramasinghe and JanithLiyanage said in a joint statement: “We are absolutely delighted to announce the opening of our new, state-of-the-art medical laboratory in Galle, which is our third laboratory as we continue to expand our RHD network to all parts of the Southern Province. Ruhunu Hospital Diagnostics has for many years been a medical hub for the Southern Province, and it has always our utmost priority to pro-vide the region with the best possible service. In gaining the globally recognised ISO certification, we feel our patients can rest at ease knowing that they're now in the saf-est of hands.

“In our goal towards continuous improvement we also encourage the full involvement of all employees at every level; as such this accreditation only serves to validate the problem solving ability of our staff and their constant implementation of the most effective solutions,” they further stated.

Over recent times, Ruhunu Hospital Diagnostics has significantly expanded its medi-cal/clinical services in the Southern province, moving into Udugama, Neluwa, Bad-degama, Tangalle and Aluthgama through the hospital’s own centres, as well as a fur-ther 300+ third party collection centres through authorised dealers of RHD.

Further highlighting their commitment to customer convenience, the gradual roll out of the Ruhunu Hospital mobile app has also allowed patients to quickly and easily make channeling appointments and view test results, all in the palm of their hands, while patients can also notified of report collection times via SMS.

All this would be for nought however if it wasn’t accessible, which is why Ruhunu Hospital ensures that these world-class services still remain affordable, with their un-rivalled value a hallmark of their overarching vision since the hospital’s inception in 1995. With many plans in line to serve the people of the Southern Province, Ruhunu Hospital will be opening its newest nine-storied 50 bed state-of-the-art hospital com-plex in year 2020 which will comprise of aesthetic beauty, environmentally friendli-ness, technology innovation and much more.
