Bay Tree supplants Cedar

Posted on June 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Southern Cross Healthcare has purchased the former Cedar Lodge nursing home in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire. Purpose-built by Denne Construction about a year ago, the home has 34 single ensuite bedrooms and has been re-registered as a residential home under its new name, Bay Tree Court. Southern Cross chairman John Moreton said the home met the company’s usual stringent requirements and takes Southern Cross’s total to 3979 high quality beds. “We are expecting to conclude two further acquisitions, in Scotland and the Home Counties, very shortly, as well as several development projects,” Mr Moreton said. “Careful growth by quality acquisition and development, backed by a solid management structure remains our focus. A reflection of our success is our consistent mature bed occupancy rate of 95% plus.”
