SOUTHBRIDGE EXPANDS PRESENCE IN NORTHERN ONTARIO
WITH LONG TERM CARE HOME ACQUISITIONS
Southbridge acquires three long term care homes in Thunder Bay from Revera
(Cambridge, ON – March 8, 2017) Today the Southbridge Health Care LP and Yorkville Long Term Health Care Fund announce its expansion in northern Ontario with the acquisition of three long term care homes in Thunder Bay, pending the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care’s approval. Currently operated by Revera Inc., a leading provider of seniors’ accommodation, care and services, the three long term care homes, Lakehead Manor, Pinewood Court and Roseview Manor, will operate under the Southbridge Care Homes’ banner, following acquisition.
“We are working very closely with Revera to ensure a smooth transition without any interruption in services or capacity,” states Keith McIntosh, President & CEO of Southbridge Care Homes. “This acquisition demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing safe, caring and secure senior living environments in Ontario. We look forward to working with the dedicated teams of employees already established in these homes to continue delivering excellence in care and services.”
The approval of the transfer of long term care bed licenses in Ontario is governed by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care, and the Southbridge transaction which is now under review, is expected to take several months. Currently, Southbridge operates 24 long term care and retirement communities across Ontario. This acquisition, along with the previously announced acquisition of the Provincial Long Term Care Home portfolio (which is currently awaiting final Ministry of Health and Long Term Care approval), will position Southbridge Care Homes as the fifth largest long term care home operator in the Province.
