We are one of the leading multi-disciplinary integrated private healthcare services providers in southern India, operating a chain of multispecialty hospitals with focus on tertiary and quaternary healthcare. We have evolved as the largest corporate healthcare group in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana with our network of six hospitals. We offer a comprehensive bouquet of healthcare services across specialties and super specialties through our network of six hospitals under the “KIMS Hospital” brand. Our flagship hospital at Secunderabad, is one of the largest private hospitals in India at a single location (excluding medical colleges), with a capacity of 1,000 beds. Spread across six cities in the states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, our hospitals provided services to over 638,529 patients (including inpatients and outpatients) in fiscal year 2017.
Led by Dr Bhaskar Rao Bollineni, Managing Director and CEO of our Company, a renowned cardio-thoracic surgeon, we have grown from a single hospital to a chain of multispecialty hospitals, both organically and through strategic acquisitions. The oldest hospital in our network was established in 2000 at Nellore, by our Promoter, BRMH, with a capacity of 200 beds and, as of March 31, 2017, our hospital network has grown to six multispecialty hospitals in six cities, with a total capacity of 2,120 beds, including 1,674 operational beds. We established our flagship hospital at Secunderabad in 2004 with a capacity of 150 beds, regularly adding further capacity taking the total number of operational beds to 854, as on March 31, 2017. We believe that affordability and quality of healthcare services provided by us and track record of building long-term relationships with medical professionals and doctors, including through equity participation by them in the companies through which we operate our hospitals, has enabled our growth and helped us build a strong name for ‘KIMS Hospitals’, which will enable us to further establish the brand in India.
We operate and manage all our hospitals, which we believe, provides us with greater control over our facilities, and helps us in our endeavor to deliver high quality and affordable healthcare services. Through our mixed portfolio of well-established, matured facilities and newly established facilities, we provide treatment for complex and chronic diseases covering secondary, tertiary and quaternary healthcare. In addition to providing core medical, surgical and emergency services, we provide complex and advanced quaternary healthcare in various specialties under disciplines such as neurosciences, cardiac sciences, oncology, orthopedics, renal sciences, organ transplantation and gastric sciences.
Our hospitals are equipped with state-of-the-art medical equipment and employ practices and policies which help us provide quality healthcare services to our patients. We were the first hospitals in Hyderabad to install 4-Arm HD da Vinci Robot technology at our hospital at Secunderabad.
