RN Health: ‘A one-stop shop for high-quality healthcare’

With a pre-existing government body that excels in healthcare globally under the universal healthcare concept, not to mention a number of go-to chains of private hospitals in the country as well, premium health and wellness centre “RN Health” enters Sri Lanka’s already competitive healthcare space.

Embarking on the goal of providing Sri Lankans with a holistic approach to all their healthcare needs, valuing comfort, convenience, and privacy in equal measure, RN Health, according to Directors and Co-founders Ravindu Thilakawardhana and Nessanka May (RN), aims to be the premier “one-stop shop for high-quality healthcare” in Sri Lanka. 

Based in the neighbourhood of Barnes Place, Colombo 7, the centre offers a panoply of personalised diagnostic and wellness solutions to handle the rapidly evolving and demanding health needs of Sri Lankans, from initial diagnosis to treatment and aftercare supportive services.

In addition to its convenient location, RN Health houses a fully stocked pharmacy and a convenience store including a healthy food grocery store. RN Group also has a renowned pharmaceutical brand under its name, “RN Vision”, which specialises in oncology, haematology-oncology, and thrombolysis, representing European and Asian manufacturers.

It is a young privately owned limited liability pharma company co-founded by Thilakawardhana and May in 2017, registered as a pharmaceutical importer and distributor with the National Medicines Regulatory Authority (NMRA) of Sri Lanka. A tiered loyalty scheme for pharmaceutical products is available, offering special discounts and personalised customer care based on client purchase patterns. 

All products found at the attached convenience store at RN are healthy, locally sourced, gluten-free, and vegan; a good choice for the health-conscious crowds of Colombo who suffer from the scarcity of such products and everyday essentials at local supermarket chains. 

RN takes pride in their ability to deliver a plush, world-class, integrated approach to healthcare through the use of cutting-edge technology and the best healthcare professionals in the island. To do this, RN is equipped with clinics and a specialist consultant service that entails haematology and oncology services, an immunisation clinic, a urologist, qualified physicians, family clinics, and medical laboratories with personalised services, in partnership with Lanka Hospitals and Kings Hospitals.

To put things into perspective, at RN, Lanka Hospital offers a fully proficient lab service covering a full range of lab tests and also a specialised cancer-related blood clinic. Meanwhile, Kings Hospital offers patients a healthcare experience including a 24-hour ambulance service, facilitating emergency transfers from either the patient’s home or from RN Health as well as a patient referral system that prioritises patients from RN Health who require specialised or emergency treatments. 

“We have not seen this concept elsewhere and basically, we provide a micro-level service provided by a hospital in an upmarket area,” expressed Co-founder May. 

During these unprecedented times within the current pandemic situation, access to exceptional clinical care in a safe and private environment that prioritises patient-centric delivery and affordability is critical, and RN hopes to deliver exactly that. They practice comprehensive Covid-19 safety protocols in line with the recommendations of the Ministry of Health and the World Health Organisation (WHO) to ensure the wellbeing of patients, visitors, and staff during these trying times.
