Hemas Hospitals (Pvt) Ltd is looking for regional (international) partners to build hospitals amidst plans to build or acquire two to three more hospitals costing around US$30 million, according to officials.
“We are looking at regional partnerships to build hospitals and we want to strike partnerships and affiliations with different hospital chains,” a Hemas told the Business Times on the sidelines of the opening of their newest multi-specialty hospital in Thalawathugoda this week. He added that Hemas is interested in partnerships with both Western and Asian partners.
He said that the company plans to build or acquire two to three more hospitals. “There’s land in Ratmalana which we bought sometime ago. In time we’ll finalise plans for it,” he said.
He added that building 60-bed capacity hospitals as well as acquiring and renovating (as they did with their hospital in Galle) are on the cards. Built with an investment of Rs 1.4 billion, Hemas Hospital’s newest facility is located 8km away from Colombo and close to the Thalawathugoda junction.
The 62,000 square feet multi specialty patient care building is a 60-bed hospital fully equipped with ‘state of the art’ facilities including modern operating theaters, delivery rooms with neo-natal care, an Intensive Care Unit, a 24 hour emergency care unit, a high tech 24 hour laboratory with the latest sophisticated MRI and CT scanners in the country.
Hemas hospitals are located in the suburbs of Wattala and Galle. Wattala is a 100-bed multi-specialty general hospital built to international standards. It has over 15,000 out-patient visits per month, 900 in-patients per month and is in its 3rd year of operation.
Galle is a 50-bed multi-specialty hospital with over 15,000 out-patient visits per month along with 200 in-patients per month and is in its 3rd year of operation.
