March 1, 2023: Medicheks, a pioneer in Sri Lanka’s healthcare sector, opened a convenient drive-in laboratory testing center at its flagship landmark at 104 Havelock Road Colombo 05. The main objective of opening the new facility is to provide fast and easy medical testing to people in Colombo, especially for Colombo-based office executives, as they tend to neglect their regular testing and check-ups due to the inconvenience at current testing locations.
The new laboratory testing centre opening also demonstrates Medicheks’ desire to widen its service portfolio beyond providing corporate and shipping medical certification and consultations and offer convenient healthcare access to people in Colombo. To mark this special occasion, the organization unveiled its new logo that redefines the values of Medicheks to the public.

In addition, Medicheks provides services such as vaccinations, E.C.G., X-Ray, ultrasound scanning, audiology unit, physiotherapy, OPD consultations, pre-employment medicals and shipping and corporate medicals.
Well equipped with the latest technology to cater to the needs of the public, the facility strictly adheres to international standards and has implemented stringent internal and external quality assurance procedures to ensure the highest levels of accuracy and precision of test results. It is also manned with academically and professionally qualified staff who can perform a wide range of laboratory investigations necessary for patient care.
Commenting on the launch, Medicheks Chairman and Managing Director Dr. Ajith Perera said, “Since 1981, Medicheks has come a long way and I am extremely proud to witness the growth and evolution of our organization especially after I took over the company in 2015.
