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 9 hospitals with over 3000 beds spread across Secunderabad, Kondapur, Nellore, Rajamundry, Srikakulam, Ongole, Vizag, Anantapur and Kurnool. We offer a comprehensive bouquet of healthcare services across specialities and super specialities under the “KIMS Hospitals” brand. Our flagship hospital at Secunderabad is one of the largest private hospitals in India at a single location with a capacity of 1,000 beds.
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 Corporate Promoter, BRMH, with a capacity of approximately 200 beds. We established our flagship hospital at Secunderabad in 2004 with a capacity of 150 beds, regularly adding further capacity taking the total bed capacity to 1,000 beds. 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 endeavour to deliver high quality and affordable healthcare services. Through our 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 specialities under disciplines such as neurosciences, cardiac sciences, oncology, orthopaedics, renal sciences, organ transplantation and gastric sciences.
