Wishing the best for LAH and ALL its personnel!! HK Fernando Family
Opened as a private not-for-profit healthcare service in 1965 on the banks of beautiful Kandy lake its situated on a plot of land that was then known as the 'Rose cottage'. This cottage was the original medical care unit to which the first patient entered. Her gardens still lend to the well-being of patients and relatives alike.

New Wing on the right
Besides providing for various medical, surgical and support services, the new wing, which stands in the previous location of the early cottage, has a reception that welcomes patients and guides them towards outpatient services via an emergency room to multiple consultation offices and a pharmacy. It offers spacious, attractive and comfortable waiting room areas for awaiting appointments.
