(COLOMBO, LANKAPUVATH) – In a bid to promote and foster holistic wellness among citizens, the country’s leading private healthcare institution Hemas Hospitals further strengthened its offering with the relaunch of its state-of-the-art health and wellness center ‘SuwathaPiyasa’ in Thalawathugoda. SuwathaPiyasa is dedicated towards preventive care and the integrated management of diseases and medical conditions – from diagnostics and comprehensive testing to directing patients to relevant treatment programmes after diagnosis.
Employing a 360-degree approach, the centre’s primary focus lies in the pro-active and effective management of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) such as diabetes, hypertension, and cardiac diseases. While there is a genetic pre-disposition to NCD’s such as diabetes, an unhealthy lifestyle plays a major role in how this condition escalates within a patient. Careful management of diet, weight and regular exercise can prevent – and in some cases of early diagnosis even reverse – the condition.
According to studies conducted by the World Health Organisation, NCD’s such as diabetes affect an estimated 425 million citizens globally and account for approximately 75% of deaths in Sri Lanka. SuwathaPiyasa is therefore poised to offer patients a chance to elevate their quality of life with the smart, pro-active management of NCDs.
“We are delighted to relaunch SuwathaPiyasa with a comprehensive portfolio of affordable preventive, specialty and lifestyle focused health and wellness services. Our highly-skilled and experienced team is fully geared to support patients with the correct guidance and constant motivation necessary to help achieve their wellness goals through regular monitoring, follow-up consultations, awareness programmes and diagnostics, particularly when it comes the non-communicable diseases.
We will continue to invest in world-class treatment advancements and introduce international best practices to ensure that our patients are well supported as they lead long, happy and healthy lives,” PrabhanGunawardena, General Manager of Hemas Hospitals Thalawathugoda stated.
SuwathaPiyasa also focuses on several core aspects of women’s wellness, men’s wellness, and health education, via a comprehensive portfolio of services that include full-body systematic checks for diabetes, cancer, and kidney ailments, counselling services, health awareness programmes, family planning clinics, NCD clinics, and programmes for smoking and alcohol cessation. Additionally, the centre also offers health screening packages for corporates and insurance companies.
The centre’s skilled medical officers utilize a multi-disciplinary approach to layout a treatment plan to guide each patient through their treatment processes to ensure medical conditions are managed in a pro-active and comprehensive manner. Each patient’s progress will be continuously monitored via a state-of-the-art medical database, with the centre going the extra mile to ensure patients follow through with appointments and checkups through reminders over the phone and SMSs. SuwathaPiyasa is open from 8.00 am to 4.00 pm weekdays; 8.00 am to 1.00pm weekends. Patients can reserve their appointments by calling the center on 0779405838 or 0112146561.
