  • Comment

HC-One, the country’s third largest care home provider for older people, has announced its takeover of Meridian Healthcare Group.

Regional provider Meridian runs 30 homes in Greater Manchester, Merseyside, West Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire, Cheshire and Derbyshire.

HC-One confirmed that the company will continue to trade as the Meridian brand and there will be no changes at the homes or with the management team.

In a statement, HC-One said it was “committed to continuing Meridian’s exemplary record”.

Meridian, which was created 15 years ago, currently operates across 30 locations, with over 1,500 registered beds and over 1,200 dedicated staff.

Dr Chai Patel, chair and acting chief executive of HC-One, said: “We are delighted that the owners of Meridian have chosen HC-One to acquire the company.

“As a high quality regional provider, their care levels match our ambition to operate the kindest homes, with the kindest, most professional staff, to make a real difference to the lives of older people in the UK,” he said.

Alan Firth, executive chair of Meridian Healthcare, said: “We chose HC-One because of our shared values and dedication to provide the highest quality care for our Residents.

“The HC-One team is committed to ensuring the best experience for residents, and the best working environment for staff, on a foundation of sector-leading financial stability,” he said. “We know they will continue with our passion for outstanding care for all those we support.”
