Hall & Prior Director Michael Hall, Chief Executive Officer Graeme Prior, General Manager Health & Care NSW Kris Healey and Grafton Director of Nursing Julie Spicer.
Hall & Prior's Chief Executive Officer Graeme Prior is pleased to announce the acquisition of Grafton Aged Care Home, located in north eastern New South Wales.
This 83-bed home is in South Grafton, on a hill overlooking the beautiful Clarence River. Grafton is Hall & Prior's 11th home in New South Wales.
"Our NSW portfolio has grown significantly in the past two years, after we acquired four homes last year," Mr Prior said. "Grafton will also be our third home in a rural community, which is a testament to our commitment to caring for those in outside of our city centres."
Mr Prior welcomed Grafton’s Director of Nursing Julie Spicer, Deputy Director of Nursing Lara Bancroft, Clinical Nurse Manager Katrina Austen and Administration Officer Tegan Wells. They are joined by 90 dedicated aged care employees that joined our organisation with the acquisition.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank our tremendous integration team led by Kris Healy, Jennifer O’Connell, Kyrsten Grady, Eloise Perkins and many others for their efforts in this venture,” Mr Prior said. “I would also like to thank Vital Health Care, our real estate partner in this acquisition.”
“The opportunity for growth is one of the fundamental reasons we were attracted to Grafton. There will be a further investment of $2.5 million over the next financial year to increase resident amenity and develop a community care offering.”
“On behalf of my fellow Director Michael Hall, I wish to welcome everyone at Grafton to the Hall & Prior family.”
