Celebrating another pioneering venture, Lanka Hospitals Diagnostics (LHD), the nation's first Medical Reference Laboratory recently inaugurated its new Sample Collection Unit located within the Lanka Hospital premises.

The sample collection unit, the only such unit in any hospital in Sri Lanka, is specially designed to provide a hassle free, convenient and faster service for customers requiring laboratory testing.

"We are very proud to launch our new Sample Collection Unit in order to provide accurate diagnoses more quickly on site and enable close cooperation between clinical teams and physicians, which is at the heart of our ethos of comprehensive patient-centric care," said Dr. Sarath Paranavitane, Chairman Lanka Hospitals.

The main objective of setting up the sample collection unit outside the hospital main building but within the hospital premises was to offer customers unparalleled convenience. Customers visiting the new unit do not have to enter the hospital building, have ample parking and no longer have to waste time waiting in queues.

"LHD prides itself on focused customer care providing all patients with unmatched levels of service," added Dr. Paranavitane.

Additionally, LHD which is renowned for its efficiency of patient care by focusing on innovation and the latest technologies now offer patients the ultimate convenience of obtaining online results of the test through its website.

This service enhances communication and convenience for patients and families, eliminating the need to visit the hospital twice for report collection. Once patients submit the sample or specimen they receive an SMS confirming its receipt. When the report is processed patients receive another SMS. A final message with the necessary User ID and Password to access the results is also sent to patients to log into the LHD website and view the test result.

LHD places its customers at the center and fulfills its commitment to them by adhering to the principles of maximum flexibility, uncompromising quality, and outstanding service. Contributing to LHD's sterling reputation is its compliance with international standards.
