Reports indicate 60% of heart patients are below poverty line and cannot afford for heart surgeries which are generally expensive. As such thousand of heart patients succumb to the disease every year. It is for the relief of such patients, KIMS and one of KIMS Hospital Directors and Dubai based business man Mr K Jalaluddin has come out with Hrudayaspandanam scheme for non affordable patients with curable heart diseases. 100 free cardiac surgeries are planned for the year 2011-12.
Patients across Kerala, from Parasala to Kasargod have benefited through the scheme. A screening committee under the leadership of Padmashree Prof Dr G Vijayaraghavan, Chief of Cardiology at KIMS ensures transparency in the right selection of deserving heart patients.
