Sharing Healthy Footprints Globally

Thiruvananthapuram-based Kerala Institute of Medical Sciences is planning a range of speciality hospitals in Kerala and beyond, reports Sonal Shukla

Kerala Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS), which runs a 450-bed tertiary care hospital in Thiruvananthapuram (T'puram), and has a turnover of roughly Rs 120 crore, is all set to spread its wings in Kerala and beyond.


Cancer Centre for Kerala

With the Regional Cancer Centre (RCC) in T'puram bursting at the seams to cater to the huge burden of cancer patients, KIMS decided to start a cancer hospital at its present location….

The cancer centre is built within the KIMS hospital premises and is slated to be commissioned in October this year, and will cover preventive, radiation, surgical and medical oncology needs of the patients.

The hospital is in the process of installing high-end technologies like linac (with IMRT and IGRT), CYBERKNIFE, Rapic Arc, brachytherapy and PET in the first phase.
