£2.5 million specialist nursing home opens in Stocksfield
Gateshead based Koru Property Services has completed a £2.5m contract to build a state-of-the-art nursing home in Northumberland which will create 65 jobs.
The first of its type in the region, Eastgate Manor is a 44-bedroom facility offering residential and nursing services as well as a specialist suite which, dedicated to dementia sufferers, incorporates technology designed to assist those with memory loss.
Construction of the facility created 75 jobs and a further 65 jobs are set to be fashioned now that Koru has handed the keys for the nursing home to Team Valley-based Executive Care Group.
It is the 26th specialist nursing home the Executive Care Group’s has opened in the UK.
Mark Taylor, Managing Director of Koru Property Services, said: “Our ageing population means that the care industry is a crucial sector and as a forward thinking company, we have been quick to establish a firm foothold in providing care home operators across the North with bespoke buildings matching their detailed agenda.
“Koru Property Services enjoys an excellent relationship with the Executive Care Group who, like many of our clients, has offered us repeat business based on our unique offerings, competitive tenders and operational efficiency.”
