Bupa has completed the transfer of 22 of its UK care homes to Advinia Health Care.
Bupa remains one of the biggest UK providers with around 135 homes and seven Richmond Villages, caring for over 6,500 residents.
Established nearly 20 years ago, Advinia Health Care now operates 38 homes across the UK.
David Hynam, Chief Executive Officer, Bupa UK, said: “We’re committed to the aged care sector and it continues to be a core part of our UK business. Reshaping our care home business enables us to focus our investment on providing high quality care for our residents, both now and in the future. I’d like to thank all our colleagues for their hard work and the care they deliver around-the-clock to residents in all of our homes.”
In 2017 Bupa invested more than £110m in refurbishing existing homes and building new care homes and retirement villages in the UK. There are four new Bupa care homes opening this year, a new village under construction and more in the pipeline.
