PAGE: How is Kutiyana Memon Hospital different from private hospitals when it comes to the quality of doctors and staff?

Ahmed Chinoy: KMH is a state-of-the-art 200-bed multi-disciplinary hospital established in the year 1993 with the aim to provide quality services and compassionate care at affordable levels.

With the core objective to promote excellence in the field of health with an uncompromising attitude, KMH is equipped with modern equipment, harnessed by professionals with a proven track record. With a commitment to providing quality care, we believe that a caring and serene environment is vital and serves as a catalyst in the healing and recovery process of the patient.

KMH has some of the best doctors in the city on a roll. KMH hired experienced doctors (associate professors and professors) in the Department of Medicine, Surgery, Gynea/Obs, Pediatrics, Anesthesia, Urology, Nephrology, Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology. These medical consultants are giving services as full-time faculty members around the clock for the quality care of the patients.

The paramedical staff of the KMH are well educated, trained and skilled and they are being appointed and subsequently deputed on the basis of standard criteria defined by international guidelines.

It is not only serving the local population of Karachi but also the patients from the remote areas of Sindh and Balochistan provinces where the health care services are not available or not up to the mark.

We are pleased to inform you that KMH services are gradually on the rise and as a part of the growth, the Nephrology department and thalassemia unit have been established. Hundreds of patients are registered in these departments and all are given free services. KMH started a Cardiology department in the year 2023 and procedures including percutaneous coronary interventions like Angiography, Angioplasty, Graft studies, pacemaker procedures, cardiac valve-related intervention, and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) are routinely performed by the trained HCPs.

KMH is different from other healthcare setups in a way that it serves ill people at an optimal care level at a very affordable cost. KMH possesses a well-structured welfare department that greatly helps in cost reduction against the health care provision and around 30 to 50 percent of patients are facilitated free of cost.

The team of professionals at KMH shares the same vision and passion that led to the establishment of this facility. It is the responsibility and willingness to help mankind and provide comfort and relief that drives this team and connects us all. This team spirit is radiated through our actions and deeds, as we all believe in striving for a positive change.

PAGE: Could you tell us about the medical expenses of a patient who undergoes surgery?

Ahmed Chinoy: I want to highlight that KMH is a charitable unit and PCP certified. It serves the OPD, IPD and ER patients at very affordable cost and the KMH welfare department greatly contributes financially to reduce their treatment costs and many patients are given free health care services.

KMH has defined surgeries in various categories and the medical expenses of the patients who undergo surgery are very minimal. In case of emergency surgeries, KMH charges nothing to patients and all the services including ER, bed, consultations, diagnostic, OT, MO, nursing, rehabilitation, pharmacy and counseling services are provided on FOC basis.

PAGE: How would you comment on the business opportunities for a private hospital in the days to come?

Ahmed Chinoy: The need/requirement for healthcare is gradually increasing day-by-day across the globe and especially in developing countries. Unfortunately, Pakistan is one of the countries where healthcare facilities are not up to the mark in general and healthcare is not accessible to many secondary to multiple reasons. In the context of the business opportunities for private hospitals in the coming days, I would like to comment that there is a need to develop new hospital setups in all parts of our country and this setup must be established with the objective of providing quality care to all either free or at very affordable cost, as I understand that healthcare is mandatory parameter like  Roti, Kapra and Makan, perhaps more important than Makan that must be provided to all. 

PAGE: Do hospitals like KMH and private hospitals complement each other in any way?

Ahmed Chinoy: Unfortunately there is a lack of coordination among private hospitals in our scenario. I personally believe that hospitals like KMH must complement each other and important especially expensive healthcare services in terms of diagnostics and interventions may be provided to all patients by developing SOPs and very good coordination.

In this way, we can really remarkably reduce the cost of the healthcare services provided and these services may be delivered with more expertise. I proudly say that KMH complements the other hospitals of Karachi and we maximally try to entertain the requests of all hospitals of Karachi as KMH has many specialised diagnostic and interventional services that are not available in many hospitals of Karachi like such specialised modern diagnostic hematology/biochemistry teats, 64 slice CT-scan, Mammography, OCT, Lithotripsy, Cardiology interventional and surgical services.

In the same context, I am in touch with authorities of private hospitals and trying my best to establish a Private Hospital Forum related to the same because my mission is to provide healthcare facilities to all.
