Metro Bank has provided more than £9m in funding for family-owned care home operator Wessex Care.
The funds will support the development of Wessex Care’s state of the art care centres, including Kimberley West and East in Salisbury, Wiltshire.
Denis Knockton, Head of Mid-Market Healthcare at Metro Bank, commented: “We’re absolutely delighted to have been able to support Wessex Care with this finance solution. They’re a well-known and respected organisation that provides vital and accessible services to the local community. I look forward to working closely with them and supporting them with their future aspirations.”
Matthew Airey, Managing Director at Wessex Care, added: “After seven years from concept to completion, we are pleased to have launched Kimberly West Care Centre and are currently working on the construction of Kimberly East Care Centre. None of this would have been possible without the support, funding and amazing service provided by Metro Bank. We have exciting plans to transform our current residential, nursing and dementia care homes and are look forward to working with Metro Bank on these projects.”
Established in 2001, Wessex Care is a family-owned operator of five care homes, with a total of 117 beds.
Under its plans the homes are being transformed into six care centres with a total of 250 beds.
The care centres will include extra care facilities and links to local health services.
