Regis Aged Care has acquired Presbyterian Care Tasmania’s aged care and retirement living business.
The sale includes Presbyterian Care Tasmania’s three aged care facilities with 287 beds in Hobart and Launceston and a “small number” of retirement village units and home care packages.
Regis currently has 54 aged care facilities throughout the country with 6,000 aged care places, five retirement villages, four home care services and four day therapy centers. It employs in excess of 7,000 staff nationally.
Regis managing director and CEO Ross Johnson said: “This acquisition is consistent with our strategy and we look forward to extending our provision of quality aged care into Tasmania.”
Presbyterian Care Tasmania’s CEO John Brooks said a key consideration in the agreement with Regis was to ensure that quality resident care would continue under new ownership.
“Our focus has always been to enhance the lifestyle of our residents. Their wellbeing and the quality of care and services they receive are paramount,” Mr Brooks said.
Regis will assume ownership of the assets from 1 August, subject to approval from the Department of Health.
