05th April 2011, www.dailynews.lk, By Indunil Hewage

Oasis Hospitals (Pvt) Ltd is on a Rs 200 million hospital upgrading process. Out of Rs 200 million the hospital has already invested Rs 120 million for the ongoing upgrading.

Oasis Hospitals Chief Executive Medical Officer Dr Prasad Medawatte said Oasis will inject around Rs 200 million to upgrade the hospital particularly in specialized medical fields. They are also in the process of upgrading the nephrology and neurology units.

“In addition we have already commenced medical tourism with Maldives and are going to launch it very soon.

“Our consultants will go there for visiting clinics and foreign clients will come to Sri Lanka to undergo cosmetic surgeries,” he said.

“However we do not see an increasing demand for cosmetic surgeries in Sri Lanka due to the high cost of the surgeries,” Dr Medawatte said. Commenting on the private healthcare industry in the country Medawatte said the industry is expected to record around 25 to 50 percent growth in 2011.

This was revealed at a press briefing held to announce the partnership between Oasis Hospitals (Pvt) Ltd and Fortis Malar Hospitals Chennai.

Fortis Malar Hospitals Ltd, a subsidiary of Fortis Healthcare teamed up with Oasis Hospitals to extend its cardiac expertise in Sri Lanka.

Fortis Malar Hospitals Ltd has taken over the operations and management of the “Fortis Oasis Cardiac Centre” at the Oasis Hospitals Colombo.

Oasis Hospitals Chairperson K M Edirisinghe said the hospital is committed to provide tertiary level treatment and care in cardiology and cardiac surgery with the assistance of Fortis Malar.
