Jungle Beach renovates female ward of Kuchchaveli Divisional Hospital

Jungle Beach, the luxury boutique hotel operated in Kuchchaveli by leading local leisure group Uga Escapes, continued its charitable efforts in the region by refurbishing the female ward of the Kuchchaveli Divisional Hospital.

Jungle Beach conducted the CSR initiative together with Alpha Industries, a subsidiary of the Finco Group to which Uga Escapes also belongs.

The ward was declared open on March 8 in the presence of Jungle Beach staff, local Ministry of Health official Dr. Susaidasan Lambert Jesusnesan and the doctor in charge of the Kuchchaveli Hospital, Dr. Duinton Retnadev Thevathasan.

This is the second occasion that Jungle Beach has provided a major facelift to the hospital.

In July 2014, as part of its second anniversary celebrations, the hotel revampedthe Divisional Hospital’s maternity ward in order to efficiently treat the large number of expectant mothers from the region.

The latest project will similarly enable the hospital’s female ward to provide a higher standard of medical care to women in urgent need of it.

“The Divisional Hospital plays a crucial role in Kuchchaveli by acting as the region’s principal center for healthcare.

Therefore, given the close relationship we maintain with those from the local community, assisting this hospital in whatever way we can is not just a choice for us at Jungle Beach but a duty which we take extremely seriously,” said Jungle Beach General Manager V.A. Sivapriyan.

He went on to state that the latest initiative was part of a continuing CSR drive to upgrade this vital local healthcare facility,with plans in the pipeline for a complete renovation of the hospital’s male ward during the next financial year.

Over the recent past Jungle Beach has earned a reputation for itself as an entity which gives back to the community in which it operates through charitable initiatives and environmentally-friendly practices.

Last December for instance, the hotel engaged in the Big Beach Cleanup, a project which saw its staff scouring the sands of nearby Kuchchaveli Beachcollecting litter and refuse.

In addition to Jungle Beach, the other hotels operated by Uga Escapes are Ulagalla in Anuradhapura, Uga Bay in Passikudah, Residence in Colombo and Chena Huts in Yala. For more information on all these properties, visit www.ugaescapes.com
