K A Health Services is a direct product of Owner/Director Khalid Ameri’s unique and inspiring background. Dr. Khalid’s foremost desire is to serve others. When he sees a need, he feels compelled to fill it. When he was nine years old and his mother passed away unexpectedly during surgery, he resolved to study medicine to become a surgeon. When war ravaged his home in Iraq, he volunteered as coordinator between the Iraqi Red Crescent and International Red Cross to prioritize the most urgent cases and relieve the sick and wounded. In 2006, he enrolled with Pretoria University, successfully completing the rigorous multidisciplinary H.E.L.P., (Health Emergencies in Large Populations) course designed for managing large scale humanitarian operations in disasters, conflicts, and other crises. When the 2010 earthquake struck Haiti, he joined Doctors Without Borders/Medicins Sans Frontiers (MSF) without hesitation.
Since its inception in 2017, Khalid’s focus with K A Health Services has been population health and how to most effectively deliver top-quality care to our clients. In the past two years, he has expanded the agency to meet the growing needs of the Boise refugee community, while creating a strong personal bond with each individual person served. Dr. Khalid has a Bachelor’s degree in medicine, and a Master’s degree in general surgery. He has volunteered with multiple international organizations, most notably on MSF missions in Yemen, Haiti, and Iraq, during which he witnessed the physical and emotional health challenges of displacement, integration, repatriation, and resettlement.
