This initiative significantly reduces our dependence on non-renewable energy, contributing to a more sustainable future and mitigating climate change impacts. Our solar efforts demonstrate our commitment to the use of clean energy striving for a greener, sustainable future for generations to come.

Kruthugana piyasa- Hospital


Since its inception in 2014, the “Kruthaguna Piyasa” project which is our Annual Housing Assistance Program has been a cornerstone of our commitment to team member welfare.

As of 2023, this initiative has provided housing support to a total of 253 team members, excluding those who benefited from the construction of full houses. This program highlights our dedication to fostering a supportive workplace, ensuring our team members have the means to secure comfortable and stable housing, thereby contributing to their overall well-being.

This investment reflects our dedication to enhancing medical facilities and ensuring a more resilient and supportive environment for patient care in our community.
