Health Metrics CEO Steven Strange said the acquisition reflected the organisation’s strategy to provide an integrated platform across the aged care, retirement living, home care, community health and disability sectors.

“The acquisition of JS Data adds another layer of expertise to Health Metrics in terms of developing a deeper understanding of the rapidly accelerating disability and National Disability Insurance Scheme sector,” Mr Strange said.

Former directors of JS Data John McDonnell and Susie Boyer said the acquisition would take the organisation to the next level.

“We know it is going to provide fantastic opportunity for growth, and ensure long-term sustainability and support for our customers and staff,” Mr McDonnell and Ms Boyer said.

Tunstall Healthcare partners with Nobel Life

Care and health monitoring and technology organisation Tunstall Healthcare has partnered with independent living and home care provider Nobel Life Pacific.

Nobel Life will offer to install Tunstall Healthcare products in all of its facilities to help meet the assisted living and care needs of its clients.

Providing safety and convenience in supportive environment among older people are among the mutual aims of Tunstall Healthcare and Nobel Life, the organisations said in a statement.

IRT Group acquires Merimbula Home Nursing Service

Aged care and retirement living provider Illawarra Retirement Trust Group announced in July it was acquiring Merimbula Home Nursing Service, which is on the south coast of New South Wales.

Merimbula Home Nursing Service has been serving residents in Bega Valley, Cooma-Monaro and Eurobodalla for more than 20 years and has 134 employees and close to 600 clients.

IRT Group CEO Patrick Reid said the acquisition reflected the organisation’s commitment to providing care to regional communities.

“Investing in regional communities enables us to provide people with more choice in aged care and this is essential for the ongoing wellbeing of older people who live outside our major capital cities,” Mr Reid said.

The transition of ownership is expected to be completed in August.
