Wood Care Group has bought Chapel View and Field View care homes in Barnsley, South Yorkshire.
The two homes, which occupy the same site in Mapplewell, Barnsley, provide care for 39 and 40 residents, respectively. Both are rated by the CQC as ‘Good in all areas’.
Following a confidential sales process with Christie & Co, existing owner Panaceon Healthcare Limited sold the two homes to Wood Care Group for an undisclosed price, growing Wood Care’s portfolio to seven homes across the north of England.
Panaceon Healthcare director Aditya Jain said: “We are proud of what we have achieved in Barnsley with Chapel and Field View care home. Having bought these homes eight years ago, we have managed to turn both into vibrant and thriving care homes, providing exceptional care … Both Barnsley and Chapel and Field View care homes will forever be close to our hearts, but we believe that we have found the right buyers in Wood Care Group which already has a presence in the area and Andrew and his team have the passion and ambition to take this business forward. They are deserving custodians of the legacy we have created. We promise all our staff, residents, and contractors a seamless transition and consistency of service.”
Wood Care Group director Andrew Wood commented: “We are delighted to welcome both Chapel View and Field View care homes to our group from Panaceon Healthcare. We look forward to working with the teams to continue to provide outstanding care for our residents.”
Jonathan Wickens, director – care at Christie & Co, added: “It has been a pleasure working with the directors of Panaceon Healthcare and we wish them well for the future. Wood Care Group is well known to us at Christie & Co, as the group acquired all seven of its homes through us and we feel very confident that they will continue the fantastic service that has been provided by Panaceon.”
