Surgery charges and doctors fees were free absolutely. The woman is very happy, and she can walk perfectly by tomorrow, without any difficulties. At KIMS we concentrate on quality, and also the low cost of our services provided really benefits the patients who come here. Ours is a 1200 bedded hospital right now, and we are in the process of adding more beds and facilities. At KIMS you can have not just orthopaedic treatment but treatment for other ailments at a very low cost, and for poor families, its free, they are only charged for certain things.
