About Us

KIMS is a multi-specialty tertiary care hospital where a competent team of specialists and sophisticated technology come together to deliver high-quality medical aid. Launched in January 2002, KIMS has emerged as one of the leading centers of pioneering medical work, research and academics in South India with global outreach.

To reach out to the community and beyond, to make quality, world-class healthcare affordable and accessible. This is the commitment that defines every aspect of clinical care, research, and education at the Kerala Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS), Thiruvananthapuram.

KIMS has invested immensely in the area of quality and safe patient care. KIMS in 2006 successfully completed both National Accreditation Board for Hospitals (NABH) and Australian Council on Healthcare Standards International (ACHSI) accreditation thus becoming the first hospital in India with both National & International accreditations. KIMS has been reaccredited by NABH and ACHSI in the year 2010. KIMS laboratory is accredited by National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration of Laboratories (NABL) and the blood bank accredited by NABH.

KIMS International Patient Relations Department offers its patients from overseas world-class treatment, personalised attention and a comfortable stay. Air-conditioned deluxe rooms and suites with telephone, television and internet are available to the guests. Our plush designer rooms on the Executive Floor offer luxury to our discerning patients.

With a fine fusion of the cardinal principles of holistic care and hospitality with the three-pronged approach of courtesy, compassion, and competence, Thiruvananthapuram-based Kerala Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS) offers a wide range of services.
