Mahamodara Teaching Hospital delivers specialist maternity care in the south of Sri Lanka. The hospital was largely destroyed by the tsunami on 26 December 2004, the devestation can be seen here (you will need a PDF reader). The hospital is working hard to rebuild and has received help from the Italian government to complete the building works. The hospital provides maternity care to the whole of the southern province and as such is very busy, with some 15 births in each labour ward each day. This means that there is plenty of opportunity to work on practical procedures for maternity care.
The hospital also has a structured teaching programme as it is a teaching facility for the University of Ruhuna.
The hospital has been the corner stone of healthcare in the Southern province of Sri Lanka for many decades. The current site of the hospital was purchased in 1869.
