Western Hospital wins BWIO Platinum Award


Western Hospital, an ISO 9001:2015 QMS certified multispecialty hospital and the pioneering leader in kidney transplantation and dialysis, has attained some commendable achievements in the pandemic year.

The hospital achieved a platinum award for service excellence at the Business World International Organization (BWIO) awards night held at Taj Samudra Colombo and also was nominated by the LMD magazine to be a most popular and top healthcare brand in Sri Lanka during the pandemic year in 2020/2021.

Head of operations, CEO Dr. Omar Sheriff expressed the following views on his company’s achievements:

“The awards won by the Western Hospital are a testament to the hard work, dedication and good practices adopted by our multi diverse team led by our famous chairman Prof. Rezvi Sheriff. It has been a tough year for the economy and the general livelihood; but our team ensured this did not affect us and continued to strive hard to serve the public.

In fact our company transitioned during the pandemic to provide services for covid19 patients and we had to make changes to our infrastructure, processors and service portfolio adding a variety of covid19 services for corporates, hotels and other SME enterprises in Sri Lanka for both covid19 and post covid19 patients.

In addition we moved in to providing more digital and mobile services via opening of our new website, mobile health services, mobile drug delivery and more. We continued to provide essential services including continuing of Sri Lanka’s longest and most successful kidney transplant program in a covid19 safe environment.

Furthermore we collaborated with the world leader in Dialysis services, Fresenius medical care and developed a state of the art Dialysis Unit with bio grade water technology and also introduced Sri Lanka’s most affordable dialysis ‘Mercy Dialysis’.

In addition our Senehasa Maternity unit, x ray services, diagnostics and laboratory services continued for our patients despite the threat of the pandemic.”
