Advinia Health Care acquires 22 Bupa care homes across the UK


Posted on April 12th, by geoff in Caring Times. Comments Off on Advinia Health Care acquires 22 Bupa care homes across the UK

Care home provider Advinia Health Care has acquired 22 Bupa care homes as part of a deal with the international healthcare group that closed in February. The acquisition follows the completion of Bupa’s transfer of 110 care homes to HC-One in December.

The deal means Advinia Health Care now operates 38 care homes in the UK, comprising 3,250 beds, an increase of more than 500%. The company is now among the top 10 private care providers in the UK, and has taken over the employment of more than 3,700 staff who previously worked at Bupa. No reductions in overall staff numbers are expected.

The equity for the Advinia purchase, whose price has not been disclosed, was provided by Dr Sanjeev Kanoria, a liver surgeon and ex-McKinsey consultant from London, who co-founded Advinia with his wife Sangita Kanoria. Debt was arranged by Credit Suisse Bank in London, and Austrian Anadi Bank in Austria, which is fully-owned by Dr Kanoria. Legal counsel was provided by Allen & Overy.

Advinia Health Care chairman Dr Sanjeev Kanoria said: “We are interested in expansion for sure, but not for its own sake. Advinia Health Care is fundamentally about delivering a higher quality of service, as well as value for money. We want more families across the UK to benefit from our commitment to the individual needs of every resident. A well-run care home can make a difference to the lives of residents and loved ones alike. It has an important value in society.”
