HC-One has launched construction of an 80-bed care home in York that will provide residential, nursing and memory care.
The launch of the City of York Council procured home, which is scheduled to open in autumn 2020, was marked by a turf cutting ceremony at the site in Burnholme.
Construction of the care home, which will be part of a Health and Wellbeing Hub, is being led by specialist developer Morgan Ashley, a joint venture between Ashley House plc and Morgan Sindall Investments Ltd.
The Morgan Ashley team is supported by architects Penoyre & Prasad, contractor Pacy & Wheatley and Employers Agent Rider Levett Bucknall.
Justin Hutchens, Chief Executive of HC-One, said: “HC-One’s mission is to be the first choice care provider for older people, and the employer of choice for the kindest and most professional care workers. We are delighted to be working with Morgan Ashley and City of York Council to help deliver a high-quality elderly care service for the people of York. New developments such as this one are vital to help address the growing shortage of care home places for the elderly in this country. We look forward to supporting our local community in York, once the home opens in 2020, by providing the very best care.
“HC-One prides itself on investing significantly in our services and our people, with a particular focus on creating meaningful training and career development opportunities that professionalise and reward our Colleagues. Through this approach, our colleagues can provide the kindest care to residents.”
