You’ll benefit from your own private bedroom during your stay. Each room has its own en-suite wetroom, designed for easy access and use when you’re not at your most mobile, as well as:
We have five fully integrated theatres. Our Theatre Manager was involved in the design and set up of the theatre space at KIMS Hospital which has allowed us to create a highly efficient system. Our patients benefit from this as it minimises the time spent under anaesthetic and in surgery.
Our three orthopaedic theatres, all have state-of-the-art laminar flow systems which help to maintain clean air flow and ventilation in the operating theatre during a procedure. This is particularly important for orthopaedic patients as it helps to reduce the risk of infection.
At KIMS Hospital, we are proud to say that our infection rates remain at 0%.*
