kandy hospitalNational Hospital Kandy is the second largest tertiary care medical institution in Sri Lanka, established and administered under the purview of the Ministry of Health Care and Nutrition.


National Hospital Kandy provides specialized health care services mainly to the Central Province which consists of Kandy, Matale and Nuwara Eliya districts and to all other provinces except Western and Southern. People are coming from all other provinces (Northern, North Western, North Central, Sabaragamuwa, Eastern and Uva) to seek expert care from National Hospital Kandy, as there are no highly specialized units in some of these remote areas.


The hospital is responsible for delivering a comprehensive range of secondary and tertiary specialist care and medical rehabilitation. Since we are a National Hospital, we teach the undergraduate medical students from Faculty of Medicine - University of Peradeniya. We are a training center for the Intern Medical Officers and post graduate trainees attached to the Post Graduate Institute of Medicine in Colombo. The Kandy Nursing Training School is also attached to the Hospital and practical training for them is also being provided by the Hospital.


We have facilities to carry out advanced Medical Investigations such as CT scanning, MRI Scanning, Interventional radiography, Coronary Angiography and Cerebral Angiography.
