Denmark-based Falck and Sri Lanka’s Med1 Private Limited has partnered to launch an emergency medical response service in the Colombo area by the end of 2012.
According to the News360.lk website, Falck, one of the leading international Emergency Services Company in the world has acquired a 50% stake in the local medical firm Med1, thus putting the required platform to launch the proposed service.
A statement issued by the Med1 says, Falck’s initial investment will be focused on operationalising the Emergency Medical Services in Colombo.
Under the proposed emergency service, the firm plans to deploy a modern fleet of European standard ambulances with well-trained medical teams, which the public can access by dialing a hotline.
Apart from it, the Denmark-based Falck will invest on further developing the Med1’s, 24-hour trilingual dispatching centre among several other plans.
