The Royal Bank of Scotland has provided a multi-million loan facility to support the acquisition of St Joseph’s Nursing Home (St Joseph’s) in Stafford by the Zion Care Group. This is to continue the growth of the Group which started in 2005.
St Joseph’s has been previously run as a convent nursing home managed by the Sisters of St Joseph’s of Cluny. Zion Care Group has acquired the 41 bed nursing home with plans to retain its existing staff, increase its number of beds and in turn create new jobs in the future.
Zion Care Group operates a number of care homes across the UK. With the recent acquisitions of Beechwood Place in York and St Joseph’s, the care home operator is looking forward to a busy period ahead.
Owner of Zion Care Group, Tim Ogunleye said: “St Joseph’s will experience minimal change as we take over the running of this existing nursing home. We are currently familiarising ourselves with our new surroundings, residents and staff. We look forward to making the best use of the existing building to help fulfil local demands.”
Kenny Nelson, Relationship Director at RBS added: “We are delighted we could once again show our support to the Zion Care Group and have no doubt Tim will enhance the current facilities available at St Joseph’s and share with the current team his proven track record of running high-quality care homes.”
Sue Jaggers, St Joseph’s Care Manager said: “I am looking forward to working with Tim and helping him to deliver his plans to increase the number of beds and create more jobs in the local area. Our main focus continues to be the provision of high quality care.”
