Care home provider Advinia Health Care has announced the names of the 11 Scottish care homes it has acquired as part of a deal with Bupa Care Homes that secured 22 across the UK. The move puts the company among the top 10 private care providers in the UK.
Advinia, who previously operated three care homes in Scotland, now manage 1,304 beds across the 14 homes and have 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.
Dr Kanoria, Chairman, Advinia Health Care 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.”
