Identifying significant potential in the sector, the Group ventured into the Healthcare sector through its subsidiary Brown & Company PLC in 2013.
The Group inaugurated the Browns Hospital as a fully fledged, 70-bed, multi-speciality general hospital equipped with the latest technology in medical diagnostics and surgery. It also operates a fully equipped medical laboratory services. Whilst the emphasis of the Hospital would be on maternity care, general surgery and high-end radiology services; the Hospital is also being developed as a centre of excellence for emergency medical care.
The healthcare sector was established with the aim of setting up a chain of secondary care General hospitals and diagnostic centres to deliver comprehensive healthcare services for patients outside the hub of Colombo. Our entry into the healthcare sector builds on Brown and Company’s long established reputation for quality and reliability and is with the objective of ensuring that patients receive state-of-the-art, personalised integrated clinical care. The Company is currently exploring opportunities to set up the second in its chain of hospitals out of Colombo, and the Group envisages operating a total of three hospitals by year 2018. We will focus on ensuring that Browns is at the cutting edge of technology in medical care and surgery.
The Group will also embark on setting up a network of medical laboratories in different parts of the country, expanding outwards from the advanced medical laboratory at the Ragama hospital.
