Several criteria, including quality of service from antenatal check-ups to labour and post-natal care, equipment, manpower, maternity care, and childcare, were taken into account while certifying the hospital, according to Dr Kasturi Donimath, Head of Gynecology Department.

Before granting accreditation, she stated that the team accessed 700 points. She stated that KIMS gained state accreditation six months ago and that the institution recently received national accreditation.

The program’s goal is to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality that can be avoided.

During the team’s evaluation, Dr. Donimath noted the labour room received a score of 92.5 percent and the MOT received a score of 90 percent. She claimed that during both Covid waves, the KIMS performed admirably, delivering 370 Covid-affected pregnant women in the first wave and 135 Covid-infected pregnant women in the second.

She thanked KIMS Director Dr Ramalingappa Antartani, as well as the Medical Superintendent and other employees, for the achievement.
