20 May, 2012

Fortis Malar Hospital Ltd, a subsidiary of Fortis Healthcare (India) Ltd, has taken over the operations and management of the cardiac centre at the Oasis Hospitals Ltd, located in Colombo, Sri Lanka. With this initiative, Fortis Healthcare has expanded its presence in Sri Lanka for the first time and added to the existing facilities in India and other countries. The Colombo-based centre has been renamed as Fortis Oasis Cardiac Centre, Fortis Malar Hospitals said.

At present, Oasis is a 170-bed facility and the plan is to provide tertiary-level treatment and care in cardiology and cardiac surgery, with the support of Fortis Malar. The centre will reportedly have top-notch cardiologists and cardiac surgeons of Colombo. Also, it will be equipped to cover all aspects of cardiac care ranging from prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation. Incidentally, Oasis Hospital offers medical services with special focus on oncology, general medicine, paediatric and Gynaecology.

“We are very happy to expand our presence in Sri Lanka and in partnering with Oasis Hospital. This addition is in line with our strategic objectivities to expand our reach and provide access to quality healthcare to communities at affordable costs,” said Krish Ramesh, zonal director of Fortis Healthcare Ltd.

Fortis Malar Hospital Ltd (formerly known as Malar Hospital), was acquired by Fortis Healthcare (India) Ltd in early 2008. Located in Chennai, Fortis Malar is a 170-bed facility and focuses on such areas as cardiology, cardiac surgery, orthopaedics, nephrology, gynaecology, gastroenterology , paediatrics and general medicine.
