Specialist health service provider, Westminster Health Care, has opened a new therapy facility at The Westminster South Grange in Dundee. The 10-bed unit is expected to provide the highest standards of care and rehabilitation to young, physically disabled adults and those with brain injury. The purpose built unit has 10 large bedrooms with ensuite facilities, providing assessment and slow stream rehabilitation. There are also plans to develop further beds in 2004/2005. Westminster chief executive Tony Heywood said the opening of The Westminster South Grange was an important part of his company¹s plans to extend its specialist services throughout the UK. “We see this as a pioneering project, continuing to set high standards for the future,” Mr Heywood said. Westminster Health Care is a leading independent provider of healthcare services, with 88 care homes and specialist healthcare centres throughout the UK. The company cares for more than 5,300 residents and employs more than 8,000 people.
