Nawaloka Hospital was established in 1985 by Deshamanya H. K. Dharmadasa. Nawaloka Hospital is one of Sri Lankas largest private hospitals and has created a chain of hospitals across the country. It is also the first hospital in Sri Lanka to introduce Intensive Care Units, Coronary Care Units, Laparoscopic Surgery and Thoracic Surgery.

The entry of Nawaloka Hospitals into the state dominated healthcare sector in 1985, saw the private health care system take root in Sri Lanka. The launch of the hospital and the overwhelming response it received from the people demonstrated a long felt need for superior healthcare in a pleasant environment. Nawaloka was set up to mirror reputed hospitals in the region which offered advanced medical technology and expert medical care, thus eliminating the need for people to travel out of Sri Lanka for specialized medical treatment.

The Hospital was a pioneering initiative, established under the Chairmanship of Late Deshamanya H. K. Dharmadasa, to be a centre of excellence in high technology diagnostic and curative facilities. Driven by the Vision to be the Hospital of Tomorrow, the medical institution has come to be known as a centre of excellence and a preferred healthcare institution in the country.

Nawaloka Hospital is located at No.23, Deshamanya H. K. Dharmadasa Mawatha, Colombo 02, Sri Lanka.

Nawaloka Hospitals opened its second hospital in Negombo at No.169, Colombo Road, Negombo, Sri Lanka.
