Every successful individual or company with ethics knows that his or her achievements depend on a community of persons working together. This is exactly what Kampala Independent Hospital (KIH) is emulating, and for the second time round, it has opted to be a Gold Sponsor of the Ugandan Convention.
Kampala Independent Hospital (KIH) is wholly owned by one of the most successful Ugandans based in the UK. KIH is part of a multinational firm that specialises in healthcare management with operation outfits in London, New York and Florida, USA.
The hospital sees patients from all walks of life and from most parts of Africa. KIH uses the latest techniques and most advanced technologies to solve medical cases and diagnostic problems. More importantly than using the latest technology, however, is a firm belief that a team approach to solving medical cases provides superior results.
The vast resources of KIH provide access to advanced 21st century technology that is not available to most hospitals in Africa because of costs. But the true secret to KIH’s success is effective use of its team. It not only has access to multiple surgical and medical specialties, but KIH physicians and staff between them speak more than 50 languages which helps in translation and understanding of culturally diverse patient groups that come from Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Ethiopia, all corners of Uganda and expatriates community that reside in the regions.
In addition, patients have only to walk down the next room for a specialty consultation as opposed to having to travel to another hospital across the country. Being part of a multinational outfit, KIH attracts exceptional professionals from all over the country and around the world, for whom financial compensation is of less importance than in private practice, since KIH physicians and consultants are salaried. There is no financial motivation to order any but only the most relevant tests or to make necessary referrals.
