Care home operator HC-One launched

  • Comment

A new company formed from Southern Cross’s largest landlord NHP and turnaround experts Court Cavendish has become the UK’s third largest care home operator.

HC-One has formally begun providing care at 241 former Southern Cross homes following the collapse of the UK’s biggest operator.

And at the firm’s official launch, HC-One Chairman Chai Patel said he wanted the firm to be “the kindest in the UK, with the kindest and most professional staff where each and every one matters and each and every one can make a difference”.

HC-One has employed around 14,400 former Southern Cross employees and made 263 appointments above care home level. These include Anne Williams, former national director for learning disabilities for England, who joins as a non-executive director.

The UK’s largest operator is now Four Seasons Health Care, which has taken on around 140 Southern Cross homes and now runs almost 500.
