Meridian acquires April Park in Sheffield


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

Meridian Healthcare has completed its acquisition of April Park in Derbyshire, a 40-bed facility offering nursing and residential care beds. The integration of purpose-built April Park into the group will bring the total number of beds owned by Meridian to 1058, making it one of the biggest independent healthcare operators in the UK. The newly acquired April Park joins others including the award winning White Rose House in the growing north east division of the group. April Park is the third care centre acquisition to complete during 2005. The Meridian team had a busy time in 2005, having started the build of 54-bed luxury Roby House in Huyton, Knowsley and with the purchase of two other facilities: Ash Court in Liverpool and John Joseph Powell also in the Knowsley area. Additional beds have also been realised at newly refurbished Fazakerley House in Prescot. Operations director Susan Firth and operations manager Mandy Bennett joined April Park manager Marie Spencer to welcome staff and residents to Meridian
