Army Troops Put Up Additional Wards at Negombo Hospital for Dengue Patients

Defence news 2017 7 3Members of the troops of the 1 and 6 Corps of Engineer Services are currently engaged in the construction of two new temporary wards in the Negombo General Hospital premises for use of Dengue patients after hospital authorities brought the lack of adequate warding facilities to the notice of HE the President when he recently visited the hospital.

General Crisanthe De Silva, Commander of the Army responding quickly to the SOS need, instructed Corps of Engineer Services, Sri Lanka Army Medical Corps and Directorate of Electrical and Mechanical Engineers of the Army to immediately commence the construction and equip the two new wards with necessary medical accessories, manpower and all other paraphernalia as soon as possible.

Just two days after the visit of HE the President, those Engineer troops have already partly completed the construction and are giving finishing touches to both building by Saturday (1).

Accordingly, Sri Lanka Army Medical Corps will provide 25 Army personnel to provide medical assistance while the Directorate of Electrical and Mechanical Engineers will equip both wards with saline stands and other medical accessories as per the requirements of the Negombo Hospital medical authorities.

As a new addition to the project the Army will put up a separate laboratory for conduct of blood tests and other laboratory procedures.
