Nawaloka Hospitals bolsters their patients’ access to healthcare with free shuttle service

In an effort to mitigate the impact of the ongoing macro-economic crisis on patients’ access to healthcare, pioneering private healthcare provider Nawaloka Hospitals, recently announced the launch of a free shuttle service to transport OPD patients based in Colombo and its suburbs, to and from the hospital.

The initiative comes at a time when dire challenges in transportation and the rise of COVID cases in the country have often prevented patients from travelling to access the healthcare support they require. Further, Nawaloka Hospitals has also taken the initiative to provide ambulances free of charge to transport patients who require hospital admission for treatment, from all across the island.

“The ongoing economic crisis in the country is an issue that has had a grave impact on the healthcare sector, for both patients and healthcare workers. No one should have to compromise their health and safety because they are unable or are reluctant to travel to medical appointments. This is just one initiative under a larger plan we have put in place to ensure that patients will continue to get the treatments and care they need at the right time and in the best possible setting at Nawaloka Hospitals.

“As responsible private healthcare provider that has always put patients first, we took it upon ourselves to assist those facing this challenging situation and continue to improve the health of our community, in a number of ways – from online medical consultations to medicine and report delivery, among others. We will continue to do our part in reducing the burden of healthcare on our people as we move through this difficult period together,” remarked Nawaloka Hospitals Head of Marketing, Rasika Thilakaratne.
