The concept of establishing KK Nursing Home came in the mind of Dr. K P Rama, MBBS, DTM a renowned physician of Bihar in December 1978 when he realized the need of having a secondary care hospital for the people in and around Bhagalpur. His aim was to provide quality medical care for poor rural population at a very affordable cost. For the first time in district of Bhagalpur a medical indoor facility was offered to common people. He started the concept of treatment while being admitted.
He was joined by his two sons : Dr. B. K. Sinha a post graduate surgeon trained in U. K. and Dr. A. K. Sinha a Physician and cardiologist trained in UK and USA. Dr. A. K. Sinha did his residency in New Jersey , USA and was awarded Who’s Who in New Jersey in 1975 for his outstanding work in Cardiology.
We have moved from being the pioneer in providing specialized facility in medical case management since 1978. We were the first to start the concept of nursing home care in Bhagalpur. In the field of non invasive cardiology we are the pioneer in starting first state of art original Schiller of Switzerland TMT(Tread Mill Test), HOLTER test and colour Doppler study of heart. Advanced Echocardiography i.e. Tissue Doppler study was started way back in 2002 ( GE Vivid FiVe) being the first installation of state of art machine in whole of Bihar. The concept of ICU care was started in 1989 by Dr. A. K. Sinha when he came back from USA after his medical training.
We have been taking care of all kinds of medical patients from neurology, cardiology , pulmonology etc, coming to us from all walks of life. It is our rich family tradition that keeps us motivated to practice evidence based medicine. Our motto is to serve the needy irrespective and we claim to have successfully done that till date.
Based on our short survey on patients in and around Bhagalpur, we realized the need to start a full fledged cardiac catheterization lab in this part of Bihar state. Hence in April 2010 we launched it.

About our cath Lab:
The concept of tertiary care in cardiology at KK Nursing Home came in the mind of Dr. Ashish Sinha when he saw patients of Bhagalpur and around getting bad to worse due to lack of transfer facility to far off higher centre. Especially the case of heart block who need an immediate pacemaker were the worst sufferers.
With the positive response of doctors in and around Bhagalpur, Dr Sinha decided to start the same facility here and relocate permanently. The cardiac wing of this hospital is named as Heart care Hospital which is in the 2nd floor. Till date we have done numerous coronary and peripheral angiography, temporary pacemaker and permanent pacemaker implantation while successfully treating numerous heart failure patients in Coronary care Unit.
