HC-One Founder and Chairman, Dr Chai Patel CBE FRCP, says:

“August's acquisition represents a true highlight of my 30 year career which started as a Junior Doctor on NHS wards in Southampton.

“The investment we have made gives us the confidence to reach out to serve even more local communities across Britain. We will be larger going forward but we will ensure that every single person we care for experiences the same culture and focus on kindness that have characterised HC-One since our first day of operation.

“The acquisition is the latest step in the expansion of our provision of the very best and kindest care. The homes we have acquired from Bupa are dispersed across the UK, and demonstrate HC-One’s ongoing strategy to focus on strong regional growth. HC-One’s growth is financially sustainable - our debt levels are both prudent and manageable - and our ever strengthening and stable financial position means Residents will continue to receive the kindest high-quality care through a range of specialist services and equally that we will continue to invest in our staff.

“I am truly delighted and honoured to announce this acquisition, the latest step in our journey from turnaround to transformation.”

In August, HC-One was delighted to announce that it has made an agreement to acquire 122 Bupa care homes, making HC-One the leading care provider in the country. This follows HC-One’s recently completed significant refinancing, and marks the latest phase of our transformative growth journey.  

HC-One aims to be the care provider of choice for individuals looking for the very best care and support. Since its formation in 2011, HC-One has had the honour and privilege of caring for thousands of wonderful people and building a great team of hard-working, and dedicated HC-One colleagues all around the UK, and we look forward to welcoming new colleagues from Bupa, and beyond, as we reach even more communities across the country.

HC-One takes great pride in its aim to be the employer of choice for the best, most professional, and kindest care staff and are proud to provide an array of sector-leading opportunities and support. HC-One continually invests in our colleagues’ training and development. As a company, they are committed to listening to colleagues, acting on their feedback and empowering them to achieve their ambitions.
