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

Belfast-based nursing home operator BetterCare Group Ltd has acquired the UK operations of Extendicare Inc., a Canadian healthcare company. The package, funded by Quintain Estates and Development plc, consists of 15 nursing homes with 921 beds in 13 locations across the UK, and a 35-bed acute private hospital. BetterCare now operates 1,802 beds in 27 facilities in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. BetterCare chief executive Charles Caldwell described the Extendicare operation as quality purpose-built accommodation providing high standards of care. “We firmly believe in the long term future of the continuing care sector, in spite of the current difficult trading conditions,” Mr Caldwell said. “This major acquisition establishes us as a national operator and will provide a platform for future growth, through both organic development and acquisition.”
