The 43 bed home had operated as part of the regional group Roche Healthcare, and has been acquired by national provider Country Court Care Group. Somerset Nursing Home is located in the village of Wheldrake on the edge of York and is a predominantly purpose built home, developed around a substantial Victorian residence. Sold together with an adjacent house, the home is set within grounds which also include a small development of retirement bungalows.
HPC Director Ian Wilkie commented, “Roche Healthcare is a respected provider with homes across Yorkshire and with whom we have worked for many years. We are delighted to have concluded the sale of Somerset Nursing Home, which we believe represents an excellent acquisition for Country Court Care Group. We look forward to working with both companies again in future”.
Patrick Roche, Director of Roche Healthcare, added “I would like to thank all the staff at Somerset for their hard work and dedication. I am very proud of the quality of care provided and I am confident that Country Court Care will maintain this.”
The acquisition takes Country Court’s number of care facilities to 30, with a total of 1,300 beds across the UK. Somerset Nursing Home will form an integral part of the company’s Yorkshire hub of care facilities.
