Minster Care acquires two homes in Malvern

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

Following the closure of St Briavels and Woodgate in Malvern, Worcestershire, with a loss of more than 60 care beds, corporate provider Minster Care has secured the future of two care homes in the town, acquiring Mowbray, a 40-bed nursing home and Gold Hill, a 40-bed residential home. Gold Hill former director James Hill said interest had been expressed for both existing and alternative uses. “Both my fellow directors and I wanted to secure the future of both staff and residents and felt that corporate provider Minster Care would be well placed to do this,” said Mr Hill. Minster Care operations manager Brian Gordon said both properties would be refurbished within the next 12 months. “The group has rapidly expanded to 15 homes and 650 beds, within the learning disabilities and elderly care sectors,” said Mr Gordon. “We hope to reach our initial target of 1,000 beds before the end of the year.” The agent acting in both care home sales was GVA Grimley’s specialist healthcare team.
