Apollo Hospitals, Colombo, is Apollo’s first multi-speciality tertiary-care hospital outside India. With the objective of bringing international quality healthcare to the people of Sri Lanka and this part of South-East Asia, the hospital provides over 50 medical specialities.
Designed to accommodate 350 beds within a total built-up area of 310,000.00 sqft spread over 11 floors, the hospital is equipped with the latest high-end Radiology and Imaging facilities, 10 (ten) Operating Theaters, 10 (ten) Dialysis Units, 72 Intensive Care Beds, a modern ER & Trauma Unit, 15 (fifteen) Super-Deluxe Suites and other in-patient facilities. A roof-top helipad has been provided to enable air ambulance service.
The original architectural design of the hospital, as proposed by SMP Architects, San Francisco (now SmithGroup), was identical to that of Apollo Hospitals, Ahmedabad. However, as was the case in Ahmedabad, the building had to be re-designed by AHEL’s in-house design team, based on Vaastu principles. Construction commenced at the site in December, 2000. The hospital was inaugurated in June, 2002. At the time of commissioning, the total project cost stood at US $ 30.00 million.
