Vavuniya Hospital to provide expanded health services

[TamilNet, Sunday, 09 March 2003, 13:05 GMT]
Vavuniya Government Hospital is to be upgraded to a General Public Hospital by the Government of Sri Lanka (GOSL) said H.A.P. Gajantha Liyanage Health Services Commissioner. Dr. Arumugam Ketheeswaran, the Vavuniya district assistant Commissioner of Health services, confirmed that the facilities and additional medical equipment required for the upgrade will be implemented immediately, said health sources in Vavuniya.

Lobbying efforts towards upgrading the hospital which has been serving thousands of outpatients daily have been carried out by the Government Agent (GA) of Vavuniya and others for a long time.

The Hospital has been functioning with severe shortage of personnel and medical facilities and has been serving the urgent medical needs of people from districts of Vavuniya, Mannar, Kilinochchi, Mullaitivu and parts of Madawachchi.

Dr. Ketheeswaran cautioned that everyone concerned with effective functioning of the hospital has to work harder to deliver the health services expected by the public using facilites that will be added to the Hospital with the upgrade and name change.
