The Management of the Hospital, as contained in the Articles of Association, is vested in the Board of Management. The directors, known as members of the Board of Management, offer their services on voluntary basis. The K H A also runs its own nursing school called The Cecily McDonnell School of Nursing. 

Our objectives  

We care about quality and take pride in our reputation for providing the highest standards of healthcare, believing that patient satisfaction is paramount. 

We will continue to maintain our nursing school as part of our professional development program.  Being a non-profit making organization, any surplus realized is reinvested in hospital development for the benefit of patients. In order to monitor our own performance, we will continue to be subject to internal and external audits.
