We are very excited to announce that HC-One has today acquired 19 high-quality homes from Helen McArdle Care, a family-run provider based in the north-east, and the first provider to achieve an ‘Outstanding’ rating from the CQC at four of their homes. We are absolutely delighted to welcome our new team members, Residents and their relatives to HC-One on our journey to provide the kindest possible care.
Over the last five years, HC-One has been on an incredible journey and we are delighted that Helen McArdle has chosen to work with us given our shared commitment to providing the highest quality, person-centred care. Our acquisition of Helen McArdle Care is another major moment in the history of HC-One, and shows our dedication to being considered the first-choice care home within each of our communities for Residents and the employer of choice for the best, and kindest care staff, looking for sector-leading career progression opportunities.
Life at HC-One will not be affected in any way and we look forward to welcoming Residents, relatives and staff from Helen McArdle to the HC-One family over the coming weeks. There will be no day-to-day changes to the outstanding care that Helen McArdle Care delivers, we are committed to maintaining these high standards.
