Launched in 2014, KIMS Hospital is the fastest growing independent hospital in Kent.
It offers on-site consultations, diagnostic testing and a range of both general and complex procedures.
It is made up of 99 beds, five theatres, one endoscopy suite and an interventional lab.
The company attributes its huge success to the work of 320 dedicated employees, and invests heavily in the training, development, health and wellbeing of workers.
A 2017 survey revealed a staff engagement score of 98%, and another in 2018 revealed that 100% of patients would recommend KIMS Hospital to a friend.
The company has formed partnerships with local NHS commissioning groups, leading private medical insurers, consultants, GPs and local businesses.
Alongside this, it has an equality strategy which outlines the hospital’s dedication to promoting inclusion and diversity.
Staff benefits include childcare vouchers, private medical insurance, pension scheme, high street discounts and subsidised gym memberships.
HR director at KIMS Hospital, Ros Daitshell, said: “We put the care of our patients at the heart of everything we do. “We aim to provide our patients and their families with a service that focuses on four key areas.
“These include putting our patients first, providing safe, outstanding and quality care, making KIMS Hospital a great place to work for our team, and achieving commercial success.
“It’s vital that we look after our staff so that they can look after our patients. “With sickness in the health sector higher than the average due to the physical, emotional and psychological demands, we continue to grow and develop our robust health and wellbeing strategy to support the physical and mental needs of our staff.”
