Sri Lanka Operations
In February 2011 the BOI company Med1 (Pvt) Limited was established as a healthcare infrastructure development project and immediately opened Sri Lanka's first internationally certified medical training institute. Med1's initial 18 months of operations were focused on establishing a strong foundation of pre-hospital care training and developing a sustainable business model. In August 2012, Med1 was acquired by the Danish emergency services company Falck A/S.
Now, in Sri Lanka, Falck offers Emergency Medical Services (Emergency and Non-Emergency Ambulance), home health care, and training.
