Dr. Bhaskara Rao Bollineni is a renowned cardiothoracic surgeon in India. He has over 27 years of experience in cardiothoracic surgery and has worked in several other leading medical institutions in the country. He started KIMS Nellore in the year 2000 with the vision to create a hospital system for his home state of AP that is capable of attracting top medical talent and providing high-quality care at affordable prices. Under his leadership, and that of Dr. Abhinay Bollineni, who joined KIMS in 2014, we have expanded into nine cities across AP and Telangana through a combination of greenfield, brownfield and acquisition-led expansion. Dr. Abhinay assumed our CEO position in 2019 and played a leadership role in expanding the KIMS’ network over the last 5 years, including in the launch of KIMS Kondapur and the acquisitions of our hospitals in Ongole, Vizag, Anantapur and Kurnool. Today, our current network consists of hospitals strategically located to serve the healthcare needs of AP and Telangana across urban Tier 1 cities such as Secunderabad and Hyderabad and more rural Tier 2-3 areas such as Vizag, Nellore, Rajahmundry, Srikakulam, Ongole, Anantapur and Kurnool. We believe our hospitals are also situated well to capture patient in-flow across AP and Telangana and from the neighbouring states of Karnataka, Odisha, Tamil Nadu and parts of central India. We also believe that affordability and quality of healthcare services provided by us and our track record of building long-term relationships with medical professionals including our doctors, has enabled our growth and helped us build our ‘KIMS Hospitals’ brand.
