Sagittarius are please to announce that they have been appointed as the preferred supplier to Kent Institute of Medicine & Surgery (KIMS) for a refreshed website to support the launch and opening of a new state of the art hospital in the heart of Kent.
After more than five years in the planning, the £95 million, seven-acre hospital development was officially opened by HRH The Duke of Gloucester on Wednesday 2nd April 2014.
To support the opening and launch of the hospital, Sagittarius have provided an online presence to the hospital in the form of a fully responsive website compatible for mobile, desktop or tablet users.
It includes full listings of consultants and specialities along with tools to make the patient journey easy for everyone.
Sagittarius will then also be providing on-going SEO and Digital Marketing support to (KIMS).
Nick Towers, Managing Director for Sagittarius: ‘We are very proud to have been selected as the preferred partner agency and working with KIMS on this new and exciting project. Technology within the healthcare sector is a rapidly growing industry”.
In a first for Kent, local patients will be able to avoid lengthy journeys to London for care as the new hospital will have one of the largest cardiology departments in the UK, and be the first and only institute in the county to carry out open-heart surgery.
Thanks to the clinical expertise of the hospital’s consultants, and in another first for Kent, KIMS will also make it possible for local neurosurgery patients to have their treatments carried out locally with the opening of the specialist department.
KIMS is the first - and only - tertiary care centre in Kent, providing high quality complex procedures and acute care in areas such as cardiology, cardiac surgery, neurology, neurosurgery, complex orthopaedics and surgical oncology.
Through the work of more than 300 clinical staff, KIMS will offer private healthcare services, as well as services to the NHS by agreement with local hospital trusts and NHS commissioning bodies, for patients across Kent, as well as East Sussex and south east London
