Springfield Healthcare has secured a £7.5m loan for the development of a new luxury care home

Springfield Healthcare has secured a £7.5m loan for the development of a new luxury care home in Beverley, East Yorkshire.

The capital from OakNorth Bank will be used to develop a luxury care home with 79 en-suite care rooms, six care home apartments, and seven retirement flats for sale. We will deliver residential and nursing care as well as dementia and working-age adult services in the heart of the Beverley community just a short distance from Beverley Minster.

Graeme Lee, founder and group chief executive of Springfield Healthcare, said: “Over the past 50 years, Springfield Healthcare has grown substantially but our core values have remained constant – to ensure the wellbeing of our clients, whether that’s at one of our homes or their own. Given the projections for people living with dementia over the next two decades, providing excellent care facilities is only going to become more vital.”

James Espley, director of property finance at OakNorth Bank, said: “Graeme has almost three decades of experience in the care sector, having built a successful portfolio of five care homes with strong operational performance. Despite the obvious challenges presented by Covid-19, the business has continued to perform well with performance in excess of its revised budget.

“The fact that it’s managed to secure equity backing from the Business Growth Fund, is a testament to the exceptional work of Graeme and his team, and we look forward to building on the relationship in the future.”

Mr Lee added: “James and the team at OakNorth Bank had a clear understanding of the sector, as well as the Yorkshire region, and were transparent and collaborative throughout the process. We’re proud to be backed by a bank that has supported some of the strongest operators in the sector.”
