Published Date: 06/12/2017 (Wednesday)

Sri Lanka President Maithripala Sirisena Wednesday laid the foundation stone for the National Nephrology Specialized Hospital in Polonnaruwa.

The largest kidney hospital in Asia to be constructed at a cost of Rs.12 billion is a gift from the People's Republic of China.

The hospital which fulfills the President's long term dream to serve the people who suffer from kidney diseases will be built at 28th Post, closed to Polonnaruwa General Hospital. It is significant this hospital is fully sponsored by the Chinese government.

The hospital will serve not only the kidney patients in the North-Central Province, but also all kidney patients in the country.

The facilities of the hospital include kidney transplant surgeries, blood dialysis services, clinical service, laboratory service and counseling service. The hospital consists a Basic Treatment Unit, Out Patients' Department, Wards with 200 beds to treat residential patients, 100 blood dialysis beds, surgeries with modern technology, two Intensive Care Units and a blood bank.

Speaking at the occasion the President said the international cooperation and the friendship, earned by the country will be fully used to achieve the development goals of Sri Lanka.

"Throughout last three years I succeeded in winning the international cooperation which had not been earned by the country in the recent past. Hence there had been a major threat for the development and the future of the country. The international recognition for our motherland was well evident during my state visits," the President said.

"Though some groups are disgracing the current government, a huge transformation has been occurred in the development of our country today. Sectors of agriculture, education, health and drinking water are in a comprehensive development now," he said.

The President gratefully recalled the assistance given by the government of China as a friendly state. He thanked the Chinese government for this special gift offered to Sri Lanka as a result of the discussions he made with Chinese President Xi Jinping in 2015 in China.

Minister Rajitha Senaratne, Deputy Minister Faizal Kasim, Secretary to the Health Ministry Janaka Sugathadasa, Director General of Health Dr. Anil Jasinghe, Director of Polonnaruwa General Hospital Dr. Indika Sampath Kumara and the Ambassador of the People's Republic of China to Sri Lanka Yi Xianliang were among those who participated in this event.

President Sirisena also laid the foundation stone for the Trauma Treatment Complex to be built in Polonnaruwa General Hospital. This will consist of rheumatic and rehabilitation unit, physiotherapy unit and rheumatic and nerve medical unit. This is to be built in 548 days at a cost of Rs. 400 million under Pibidemu Polonnaruwa District Development Program.

After unveiling the plaque the President observed the plan of the building complex.

Director of Polonnaruwa General Hospital Dr. Indika Sampath Kumara also joined this occasion.
