In pursuing the association's objectives as a Non-government organization, KPHA shall undertake the following:
Administrators of several private hospitals convened and decided to form an association of private hospitals within Kerala which will be a platform to come together; discuss and address the problems faced by the healthcare industry. Thus Kerala Private Hospital Association was born on the 24th August 1997 accepting the bylaws and setting “Aswini Hospital, Thrissur” as the Headquaters.
The Kerala Private Hospitals Association is the ONLY association which represents all private hospitals in Kerala without any differentiation on the size and ownership of the hospital. Any privately owned clinics, hospitals or other health facilities engaged in any aspect of the delivery of private healthcare service desirous of being affiliated to KPHA shall comply with the requirements of membership of the association.
KPHA today is the largest organization of private healthcare institutions in the state of Kerala. Since its formation in 1997, KPHA has grown to be the pillar of strength and support for private healthcare institutions. Today, KPHA is recognized by the government as one of the main representative of the private healthcare sector in policy matters.
Kerala Private Hospitals Association always act considering the justifiable and practical possibilities to handle the issues faced by the hospitals suitable to the situation and the type of the institution concerned.
Kerala Private Hospitals Association knowing well the problems of the private hospitals in Kerala has accepted the path of representations, discussions, mediations and finally approaching the Courts of Law. As we know majority of hospitals may not be aware of the numerous ACTS and Rules regulating private hospitals. Kerala Private Hospitals Association has created a Legal Forum with an intention to protect the interests of the private hospitals in general and the member hospitals in particular. We expect the members of KPHA shall take the help, guidance and service of the forum for solving the legal problems in their institution. KPHA extends it services to non-members too if they approach. The Legal Forum is headed by Adv. Hussain Koya Thangal.
