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

BUPA Care Homes is building a 101-bed three-storey nursing home in Southampton, expected to be completed in 2005. Investment capital to build the yet-to-be-named new home was obtained through a partnership between BUPA Care Homes, Southampton City Council, and Southampton City Primary Care Trust. BUPA will develop and manage the new nursing home. BUPA Care Services managing director Mark Ellerby said the project was part of BUPA¹s continued investment in the sector. “BUPA has extensive experience in building and running residential and nursing homes, caring for around 16,000 residents in more than 240 care homes across the UK,” Mr Ellerby said. “We have invested more than £600 million in creating quality care homes and invest more than £12 million in maintaining these homes every year.”
