KIMS Hospitals IPO Review – About the Company
Founded in 1973, Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences Limited (KIMS) is a healthcare group that currently operates mainly in AP and Telangana. Since its inception, the hospital chain has grown both organically and through a series of acquisitions.
According to a CRISIL report commissioned by KIMS, based on the number of patients treated and treatments offered KIMS is the largest corporate healthcare group in the 2 states.
They operate 9 multi-specialty hospitals with a total bed capacity of 3,064, including over 2,500 operational beds as of March 31, 2021. The report shows that the group has 2.2 times more beds than their nearest competitor in the state.
Their flagship hospital located in Secunderabad (Telangana) is one of the largest private hospitals with a capacity of 1,000 beds if medical colleges are excluded.
It is important to note that one-third of this capacity was added in the last 3 years. But the hospital has successfully improved its bed occupancy rate from 71.83% to 78.60% over these years.
