For almost a century, The Joseph Fraser Memorial Hospital has been at the forefront of women’s and children’s healthcare.
Today, it has received a complete renovation and renewal, including state-of-the-art equipment, a host of new facilities and a wider choice of specialists, consultants and caregivers.
This elevates The Joseph Fraser Memorial Hospital, which is managed by Melsta Health, to the premier facility for women’s and children’s healthcare in the country.
The hospital has completely upgraded its facilities, features and overall offering, while retaining some of its most distinctive elements, such as its location, the colonial architecture of the original building, green lawns with wide-open spaces and some of the locale’s more familiar facets.
Additionally, the hospital’s team of doctors, specialists, consultants, and caregivers encompass some of the island’s most sought after healthcare professionals.
Among the state-of-the-art additions are dedicated facilities with a focus on resources, like an ultramodern blood bank, operating theaters that are among the best in the island, lab facilities, and focused physiotherapy care and more.
Dr Iraivan K Thiyagarajah, Director of the Melsta Health Healthcare Colombo/Hospital Management Melsta, said, “The fundamentals of enduring health are built in utero, at birth and during the course of childhood. We know that the physical and mental health of the mother is critical to both the fetus and child and this is why we believe in doing all we can to improve the level of care offered in service of women’s as well as children’s health, throughout every stage of their life. We will continue to address the most important healthcare needs and improve outcomes for women and children as front-line research continues to inform developments in clinical practice”.
