BUPA acquires Carrick group

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

BUPA has acquired Glasgow-based Carrick Care Homes for an undisclosed sum. BUPA says the acquisition of the group of 12 care homes, all situated in West Central Scotland, reinforces the company¹s position as the largest care homes provider in the UK with a total of 258 homes with more than 17,700 beds. BUPA Care Services managing director Mark Ellerby said, the acquisition would significantly increase BUPA¹s presence in Scotland. BUPA already has 15 care homes in Scotland and the Carrick portfolio brings BUPA¹s Scottish total to about 2,500 beds. “The new homes are predominantly purpose-built and provide a mix of high quality nursing, residential and dementia care,” Mr Ellerby said. “We are committed to providing the highest quality care to residents in all our care homes and are looking forward to working with our new staff, residents and relatives. I take this opportunity to welcome them to BUPA and trust that they will benefit from our strong track record in training and development for our people.”
