Expolanka’s Expo Medix treats 100,000th patient



Expolanka Holdings PLC, recently reached its milestone 100,000th patient in their flagship CSR programme ‘Expo Medix’, a fast growing chain of affordable and not for profit medical clinics. Inspired by the idea of providing free medical consultation and subsidized drugs to patients, ‘Expo Medix" treats patients in Mattakkuliya, Slave Island, Grandpass, Wattala, Panadura and Kalutara with an average of over 200 patients visiting each clinic weekly.


Commenting on the project, Head of Marketing, Corporate Communications & CSR for Expolanka Holdings PLC Paddy Weerasekera said, "Expo Medix has come a long way since we initiated the programme with a simple clinic in Mattakkuliya. This is a memorable milestone in our journey as a responsible business entity that contributes to the wellbeing of the community in a critical area. Today, Expo Medix is a fully-fledged chain of medical clinics served by qualified doctors and nurses. The clinics are fully functional in providing medical consultation, diagnostics services and operations for minor surgery requirements. They also provide medicines and drugs at a subsidised cost".


Expo Medix addresses patients from the lower income segments, who cannot afford the usually high-priced private healthcare system and find themselves unable to address their immediate health needs satisfactorily.


This community-oriented culture embedded in all aspects of the Group ensures that all business activity is undertaken in an ethical and sustainable manner while keeping the best interest of the community in mind. In line with this credo, Expo Medix strives to bridge this gap by giving an affordable solution to the people without compromising on quality and efficiency of health services.
