On the acquisition, Keith McIntosh, President & CEO of Southbridge Capital Inc. shared, “We are very excited to welcome Provincial Long Term Care to our family of homes. The Ozimek family has provided a high standard of quality care for the seniors in the communities they have serviced for the past 40 years.

We are confident that these new owners will ensure a comparable or enhanced level of care and service for our residents and security and opportunity for our employees”.

With the acquisition of Provincial Long Term Care, Southbridge will employ over 3,000 employees in 22 communities across Ontario, providing quality care for 2,700 residents in a combination of long-term care homes and retirement facilities.
