Cornerstone Healthcare Group wins Health Investor Award
We are thrilled to announce that our portfolio company, Cornerstone Healthcare Group, won Complex Care Provider of the year at the 2020 Health Investor Awards last week. This is one of the care industry’s most prestigious awards and a huge testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire Cornerstone team.
Cornerstone focuses on providing bespoke care to people with complex neurological, physical and mental health needs associated with challenging behaviours, who struggle to be cared for in other ‘ordinary’ care home settings.
The judges commented that: “This service has proved that it can support people with some of the most complex needs, who have often been failed by other services and other parts of the system. What is particularly impressive is the comprehensive nature of this service, which looks at the physical and emotional needs of the people it supports and their families.”
Ignite invested in Cornerstone in 2018 buying two homes in Hampshire with 154 beds. A third home was acquired in 2019 and we’re working with the management team on further acquisitions with the aim of growing to over 350 beds.
Massive congratulations to Cornerstone’s management team, Johann van Zyl (CEO), Dara Ni Ghadra (COO) and Jens Kleyenstuber (FD), on having their hard work recognised in this way, and of course to the entire team at Cornerstone who are so passionate about looking after the homes’ residents.
