Abstract

The Lady Ridgeway Hospital (LRH) for Children is the premier, exclusively paediatric hospital, in Sri Lanka. It was opened in 1910 and named after the former First Lady, Lina Ridgeway, the wife of the former British Governor of Ceylon, the name used to describe this resplendent island at that time. LRH is now, arguably, the largest Children’s Hospital in the world with a bed strength of over 1100.
