Advinia Health Care

Care home provider Advinia Health Care announced today the names of the 22 Bupa care homes it has acquired, as part of a deal with the international healthcare group that closed in February. The acquisition follows the completion of Bupa’s transfer of 110 care homes to HC-One in December.

The deal means Advinia Health Care now operates 38 care homes in the UK, comprising 3,250 beds, an increase of over 500%. The company is now among the top 10 private care providers in the UK, and has taken over the employment of more than 3,700 staff who previously worked at Bupa. No reductions in overall staff numbers are expected.

Inspectors found staff were caring and compassionate and people were being provided with safe, responsive, caring, effective and well-led care.

Small business from the UK, Australia and New Zealand have chance to pilot their programmes across Bupa’s network of care homes

Bupa is calling on startups in a bid to bring further innovation to the aged care sector. As part of its Bupa B Table programme, pitches need to be designed to benefit older people, either by supporting nurses and carers working in Bupa homes, or through supporting independent living.

Applications are open now, and successful candidates will be mentored by senior Bupa business leaders and technology experts. They will also have access to space in Bupa’s offices to develop their ideas, and potential investment from Bupa to help develop their products.
