Why Kims ?
Today with disease becoming more and more rampant, medical services are available at each nook and corner of the country. In such a fast growing field, we at Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences persevere to maintain a passion for compassion and zeal for patient care.
At KIMS, our sole focus is patient care using the latest technology and medical advancement. 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 Hospitals” 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.
While providing quality healthcare, we are also focussed on ensuring that our facilities and services remain affordable for our patients. Our ability to provide affordable healthcare depends on a number of factors, including:
- standardized protocols for medical and operating procedures ensuring optimal utilization of resources;
- streamlined and centralised supply chain operations and vendor management achieving better price negotiations, cost efficiency and economies of scale;
- ensuring optimal number of employees per bed;
- low project cost and effective capital deployment; and
- availability of full time doctors and consultants, including through our DNB program.
We have a track record in building long-term relationships with our doctors whom we consider to be our ‘partners in progress’ As of September 30, 2017, we had 766 doctors (including 383 doctors engaged on a consultancy basis) associated with us, complemented by 1,862 nursing staff and 1,002 paramedical staff. Many of our specialists, physicians and surgeons have been trained in premier medical institutions across the world and have received accolades and awards. We endeavour to access qualified and trained medical resources through our educational initiatives. We are accredited by the National Board of Examination to enrol students to a number of specialty-specific DNB courses, which serves as a training ground for a number of our junior doctors and medical support staff and helps us to contribute to the availability of skilled doctors for recruitment. As of September 30, 2017 we had 162 doctors in our DNB student program.

Medical and Technical Expertise
Our hospitals are equipped with modern medical technology and equipment. We have also installed robotic equipment which provides minimal invasive techniques and has the following benefits:
- patient comfort due to smaller incisions;
- reduced length of stay and due to faster recovery;
- enhanced precision, flexibility and control for the surgeon;
- minimal complications during and after surgery; and
- less pain and blood loss.
Below is the description of certain advanced equipment used by us:
4-Arm HD da Vinci Robot: Our robotic surgical system, the 4-Arm HD da Vinci Robot technology, offers improved safety and effectiveness for the patient and superior control and predictability to the doctor. This system has been designed to facilitate complex surgeries and surgeries done using this system are virtually scar less.
Novalis Tx Linear Accelerator: Novalis Tx Linear Accelerator is a machine used for radiosurgery and radiotherapy. This machine is used for treating cancer patients and uses high-energy particles, such as x-rays, gamma rays, electron beams, or protons, to destroy or damage cancer cells.
O-Arm Scanner: The O-Arm Scanner is a multi-dimensional surgical imaging platform optimized for use in spine, orthopaedic, and trauma-related surgeries. The machine reduces x-ray exposure and increases safety for both medical staff and as well as the patients.
3 Tesla MRI: The 3 Tesla MRI is non-invasive diagnostic imaging technique which uses a strong magnetic field to produce high-quality pictures of soft tissue inside a patient’s body. As compared to the 1.5 MRI, it performs faster scans and gives improved diagnostic sensitivity and specificity.
4D Scan for pregnancy: 4D Ultrasound E8 Voluson machine helps acquire images with more precision than regular 3D machines. It dynamically applies transparency to rendered structures for a more comprehensive view of anatomy from a solid surface structure to developing internal anatomy and illuminates foetal anatomy with up to three independent light sources of variable intensity to focus on even the tiniest of structures.
KIMS believes in reach out to each and every patient. In an effort to do so, KIMS is constantly improving and opening new destinations of care for the benefit of its current and future patients. We are constantly striving to bring you closer to us.
