McCall heads up Four Seasons in Northern Ireland
Jim McCall, director of acute services at the Southern Trust, has joined Four Seasons Health Care as managing director of the company’s Irish care homes division.
At Four Seasons Mr McCall will be responsible for 66 care homes across Northern Ireland, which means the company is the biggest provider of elderly care in the province – as well as being one of the biggest in the UK, with some 330 homes nationwide. Before his role at Southern Trust, Jim McCall was chief executive of Ulster Community and Hospital Trust.
He has held a number of senior positions within social services since he started as a social worker in 1980.
Mr McCall is the second high profile NHS figure to join Four Seasons Health Care. Last year Dr Pete Calveley was appointed chief executive after formerly being a GP and PCT director.
