From its beginnings as a simple clinic in Slave Island, this not- for- profit CSR program by Expolanka now comprises of a chain of fully-fledged Medical Clinics and Surgeries served by qualified doctors and nurses. The clinics are fully functional, providing medical consultation & diagnostics services, operations on minor surgery requirements, and provides medicines and drugs at a subsidized cost.

A natural extension of the community development culture which is central to our business philosophy, Expo Medix aims to be an affordable solution to patients from the lower income segments who are unable to afford the usually high-priced private healthcare system and find themselves unable to address their immediate health needs satisfactorily. Our goal is to do this without compromising on the quality and efficiency of health services.
