Karama Medical Centre (KMC) was founded by Mr.William P Jeyasingh from humble beginnings in the summer of 1992 in the bustling enclave of Karama.
The neighborhood of Karama has been and continues to be the hub of middle and upper middle class of the expat and local population, providing affordable housing, quality restaurants, numerous shopping centers, markets and central location.
It was this community that Mr. William wanted to serve by setting up one of the first Medical Centers in the area. KMC has been faithfully serving the community of Karama and beyond for more than 21 years.
KMC was started with one Doctor and a couple of Nurses, today it has grown to employ more than 38 Doctors with a supporting staff of more than 100 working out of 8 Medical Centre’s. KMC as a group continues to expand with plans to open new clinics in emerging neighborhoods.
The core value of KMC is “Healthcare with commitment”. We at KMC are committed to offer the highest quality of healthcare to our patients at an affordable price.
We have been committed from day one to accommodate everyone in the community with a motto - service to all. This has been the underlying concept based on which we price our services.
We are committed to a high level of care and efficiency backed by scientific understanding that the Doctors and staff extend to our patients; we believe that especially in the health care industry we have to go above and beyond our requirement in order to make our patients feel comfortable and content.
Mr. William has installed each and everyone of the KMC team with 3 core principles that he practices everyday – Kindness, Compassion and Efficiency backed by Science.
The KMC Team consists of 38 Doctors, 50 Staff Nurses, 15 Para Medical Staff and 20 Support Staff.
The entire Team is instilled with a strong sense of belonging that enables them to take responsibility for their actions and work at the peak of their capabilities.
It is this sense of belonging that also makes each and every individual in the Team to be their own in-charge and this creates a sense of responsibility that translates to efficient and compassionate patient care.
All the Doctors in KMC practice a Science based approach to Medicine mixed with a much needed dose of compassion.We are proud and grateful to have such a dedicated team of people behind KMC.
