Craegmoor buys children’s home

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

Craegmoor Healthcare has acquired a nine bed residential unit in north London, caring for children with challenging behaviours. Andrew Surgenor, of Edward Symmons Healthcare which handled the sale, said Craegmoor acquired the home, off an asking price of £950,000, after a discreet and confidential campaign targeted at a restricted number of operators active in the market. “This sale of a highly specialist children’s home fits neatly into Craegmoor’s expansion into specialist children’s services in north London,” Mr Surgenor said. “It also demonstrates that high prices per registration continue to be achieved where there is a proven track record and high standard of care and operating practices.”
