Cornerstone Healthcare has revealed plans to complete a 42-bed care centre in Surrey in autumn 2020.
Marula Lodge will provide care for adults with challenging behaviours associated with complex neurological, physical and mental health needs.
Group Chief Executive Mr Johann van Zyl said: “This project gives us the opportunity to offer a much-needed service in Surrey and the surrounding areas. Demand for our care model continues to be high with our existing services nearly always at capacity.”
The home in Camberley will add to Cornerstone’s existing services in Hampshire; South Africa Lodge in Waterlooville and Kitnocks House in Curdridge.
The multi-million-pound state of the art project, which will create over 100 jobs, will increase the group’s beds to 200 and launch the next phase in the company’s ambitious five-year growth plan to have 500 beds by the end of 2024.
Greg Pounds, Cornerstone’s General Manager Business Development said: “Our approach, before we open a service in a new area, is to understand the local need. We’ve been working closely with commissioning groups and local branches of support organisations who identified significant demand for the kind of care we provide.”
This new development has been designed by architects Ian Holmes and Danny Sharpe from residential care specialists, NorthStar. The property transaction was facilitated by Cushman Wakefield and Christie & Co.
