Ceylinco Healthcare Services began as the Ceylinco Healthcare Centre and initially provided cancer screening services to the people of Sri Lanka. Subsequently, the centre went on to create optimum awareness of the disease, its statistics, causes and treatment. A vital part of this initial stage was informing the public that, if detected early, some cancers can be cured. This private screening centre proved to be a crucial step in the early detection and treatment of cancer, in Sri Lanka.
Established in 2004, the Ceylinco Diabetes Centre provides a valuable service to Sri Lanka’s growing number of diabetic patients. This specialised centre is fully equipped with the latest technology in diabetic treatment and provides services such as screening for diabetes, treatment/management of the disease, counselling, a diabetic treatment pharmacy as well as general health screenings and tests. A senior team of well experienced professionals ensure that patients receive the highest level of care in a comfortable, homely environment.
In 2007, Ceylinco Healthcare Services made a momentous advancement in the treatment of cancer by introducing Sri Lanka’s first ever radiation treatment unit which included a Linear Accelerator. This meant that cancer patients in Sri Lanka were saved the emotional and financial burden of travelling overseas for treatment. They were now able to receive treatment and care they needed in their home country, while being close to their loved ones.
Ceylinco Healthcare Services is the only cancer treatment centre in the country to offer Tomotherapy treatment which is considered the most advanced radiation treatment for cancer in the world today. This is in addition to the centre’s first radiation treatment unit which included Sri Lanka’s first ever Linear Accelerator.
Ceylinco’s Tomotherapy Centre is equipped with the latest TomoHD™ treatment system from Accuray Inc. (USA), which is the global pioneer in the field of Tomotherapy.
