St Johns Nursing Home in Droitwich, Worcestershire, has been sold via Christie & Co to Spring View Care, off an asking price of £2m.
St Johns is a well-established nursing home registered for 43 service users and sits in a two-storey former Victorian hospital, which was converted into a care home in the early 1990s.
It comprises 40 single rooms all with en suite facilities, and three one-bed flats, all of which are spread across two units; The Pines which has 26 dementia nursing bedrooms; The Limes which has 17 bedrooms for residents with enduring mental health needs.
The home is located in Droitwich, Worcestershire, and lies in a residential area in a cul-de-sac which is just a short walk from the town centre. Droitwich is a growing town which lies alongside the River Salwarpe on the A38 close to the M5 and M42 Motorways in North East Worcestershire. Further expansion is continuing in the town with major residential developments to the south.
The business was previously owned by Shaw Healthcare. Speaking on behalf of the company, Commercial & Development Director, Geraint Evans, said, “Thanks to Christie & Co for making the transition of ownership to Spring View Care as smooth as possible. We wish all the residents and employees the very best.
'The employees at St Johns will also be transitioning with the service, so the residents can be assured of a consistent level of care with familiar faces.”
St Johns has been purchased by Spring View Care, an experienced, expanding local operator with two other homes in its portfolio. Director Kamal Khan said, 'We are delighted to be taking ownership of St Johns. Paul Reilly at Christie & Co has been instrumental in finding a home that meets our criteria so well and in helping to make the transition so smooth in the current environment.
'We’re really looking forward to the challenge of making St Johns one of the top performing Nursing Homes in Worcestershire.”
Paul Reilly, Director at Christie & Co, who handled the sale, said, “Following a period of marketing, we secured a sale to Spring View Care, a company well known to us and a provider of excellent care. This acquisition is part of Spring View’s expansion plans and brings their current portfolio to three homes. We wish them every success in the future.”
