About Us

Hospital Overview

TKC is a not-for-profit specialized hospital providing quality care to patients suffering from kidney disease. TKC opened its door to the public in 1985 with a small dialysis unit consisting of just two machines. Today, TKC provides comprehensive quality renal care to patients suffering from kidney and bladder problems. It has 100 in-patient beds, four operating theatres, and intensive care unit (with ventilators) for both adults and paediatrics, and a full range of Urological, Nephrological and transplant services.

Patients suffering from kidney diseases are at risk of having other diseases as well, therefore the Centre also offers non-invasive Cardiology services as well as Gastroenterology services with Endoscopic facility. Consulting Clinics provide services in almost all specialties including nephrology, urology, transplant, cardiology, haematology, pulmonology, gastroenterology, general surgery, neurology, diabetology, paediatrics, physiotherapy and nutrition.

Being a community project, TKC has also undertaken the task of educating the masses about common renal ailments which, when left unattended, lead to drastic, life threatening complications. It is very active in educating and spreading knowledge about health and disease prevention at all levels of society including schools, workplaces and public places. It continuously engages in activities and events whereby education and awareness is maximized.

Under the Societies Registration Act XXI of 1860 as Not-for-Profit Institution – 1986 on 16th November, 1986.

As Voluntary Social Welfare Agency under VSWA Ordinance – 1961 on 17th November, 1992 as a Charitable Organisation.

PCP Certified since 2005.

TKC holds a valid National Tax No. (1407729-9) and is registered with the Sindh Revenue Board – SRB (SNTN 1407729-9) and is approved U/S 2(36) (c) of the Income Tax Ordinance 2001.


It has been almost two years since the Corona Virus Pandemic struck the world, leaving in its wake human suffering, death and deprivation on a scale unprecedented in living memory. In such a sombre and depressing atmosphere, I am sure that philanthropists, good corporate citizens and all people of conscience such as yourselves, will agree that the time for any gaiety or festivity in Karachi has long passed. As a result, no fundraising events, though much needed, could be held keeping in mind the essential COVID protocols and SOPs.

This decision, however, fitting was a very difficult one to make. As supporters of The Kidney Centre you are all aware that it is your donations and contributions that enable us to do the good work that we have been doing to alleviate the very real and continued suffering of thousands of poor patients inflicted with life-threatening kidney diseases. Our welfare expenditure, through which poor patients receive either free or subsidized treatment, is currently in excess of Rs. 488,731 million annually. This enormous amount was raised throughout the year through fund raising drives culminating in our highly anticipated Annual Fund Raisers. Thus, the cancellation of any such activity has a direct and deadly impact on our ability to provide a vital life line to our many needy patients and require careful re-evaluation this year for our ever growing welfare demands.

Our top priority is to build a new OPERATION THEATRES COMPLEX as the current Operation Theatres have not been upgraded since 1989. The new MODULAR OPERATION THEATRES COMPLEX will comprise of 06 Operating Theatres (OTs) consisting of metal and tempered glass walls and ceilings, lighting gear, electrical equipment and medical gas incorporated etc. A separate holding and recovery room, sterilized and non-sterilized store rooms, staff and surgeon area, scrub station. This will allow the clinical team to operate with greater ease leading to better clinical outcomes. Alongside this, we will also be in a better position to introduce various diverse General Surgery and Day Care procedures in the near future. Cost of a single Operation Theatre is Rs. 30 Million and the overall cost of the project is Rs. 300 Million.

TKC is registered as a Not-for-Profit Institution which effectively translates into the fact that affluent patients subsidize the treatment of the impoverished and non-affording categories thereby making it a sustainable venture. Please bear in mind that being a charitable institution we are unable to finance this urgently necessary expansion from our own meagre resources. Therefore, we are reaching out to generous philanthropists to help us in our ongoing commitment to save precious lives.

As in the past, this collective commitment to community service has achieved much that we should all continue to value and be proud of. It is a living testament to the true spirit of philanthropy and selflessness.
