In addition, as a pioneer in the women and childcare hospitals in Sri Lanka, Ninewells is dedicated to create an especially hygienic atmosphere in the operating theatres, labour rooms, and wards.



Unlike other large organisations and offices, hospitals should undertake special procedures to provide clean linen and clothing to their staff as well as to their patients. This dramatically reduces the rate at which infections spread and has played a large role in improving the overall quality of healthcare at Ninewells. Ninewells operates a laundry in order to provide clean and hygienic linen to all patrons and staff members. The laundered linen undergo disinfection procedures before being distributed to our patients and staff.

In order to offer you the best quality of care, our staff follows international standards for providing hygienically acceptable clean linen which is specifically recommended for use in a hospital. Ninewells enriches the comfort of our patients whilst ensuring the hygiene of regularly provided linen to patient rooms, operating theatre complex and other clinical areas.
