Mr. Ahmed Jawahery, Chairman, KIMSHEALTH Medical Center & President, Royal Bahrain Hospital, said: “Since 2004, KIMSHEALTH has always strived to provide new services to its patients and tend to their healthcare needs.

The Center is well-equipped to deliver the best experience through modern dialysis technology, fully trained and qualified dialysis technicians and nurses and pleasant ambience.
Talking about the Dialysis Center, Dr. Sheriff M. Sahadulla, Group Chief Executive Officer at KIMSHEALTH, said: “Our objective is to provide cost-effective dialysis treatment to our patients, with the best quality, expertise and technology.

Mr. Jacob Thomas, Group Executive Director at KIMSHEALTH further explains: “The Dialysis Center is essentially an outpatient one and is meant to provide a walk-in walk-out environment without a hospital feel to the patients with the comfort of complimentary pick up and drop from their home or work place.
