An HC-One care home is to be the centrepiece of a multi-million pound Health and Wellbeing campus in York.
A ‘topping out’ ceremony for Mossdale Residence, which is due to open later this year, was attended by HC-One along with partners, Morgan Sindall Later Living and City of York Council.
John Ransford, Executive Director at HC-One, said: “We at HC-One are thrilled to be marking this important stage of the care home’s development, together with the City of York Council and Morgan Sindall Later Living. We are excited to become part of, and support, the wider York community when the home opens later this year.”
Mossdale Residence, which will provide residential, nursing and dementia care for up to 80 people, will include a cinema, bar, hair and beauty salon, hobby and crafts room, and a range of lounge, dining and outdoor terrace spaces.
The home will also employ a range of digital care tools, including electronic care records.
The Health and Wellbeing campus is being developed on the old Burnholme Community College site in York. Alongside the care home, it will deliver healthcare facilities, a library, a range of community and sports facilities, as well as much needed new housing. The development was also one of three nominees for the Project of the Year award at the recent Government Property Awards.
The development of this new care home is the first of a number of innovative new partnerships HC-One has formed with local authorities who are keen to see the organisation operate in their local area. HC-One’s new Development Division will be announcing further partnerships in due course.
