Healthcare firm to double North Tyneside HQ size to accommodate growth

A North East healthcare specialist has announced plans to expand its head office following rapid growth.

Connect Health is set to double its head office space at Quorum Business Park in North Tyneside.

Founded in Hebburn 30 years ago, the firm has grown to a 675-strong team across over 300 locations, and specialises in providing integrated community musculoskeletal services.

The firm’s headquarters are set to be refurbished to comprise more space, enhanced staff facilities, a modern working environment and training facilities, with work scheduled for completion next spring.

Lee Ali, chief financial officer at Connect Health, commented: “We’re really excited to be continuing to invest within our region in our 30th year, creating a larger office space with improved facilities for colleagues to thrive.

“Doubling the size of our head office space, allows us to significantly increase our support infrastructure over the next five years to ensure we continue to provide our high levels of service and quality with the additional demands generated from our NHS and occupational health partners.”

John Sparkes, head of regeneration and economic development at North Tyneside Council, added: “It’s extremely gratifying to see such a positive story. Connect Health is one of the fastest growing employers in the North East and is now expanding its head office in North Tyneside.

“The business was born and bred in the North East, founded by local clinicians, working with local authorities, the NHS and local businesses. Connect’s services complement and support what the public sector does and it’s great that they are able to keep investing in the locality.”
