BaptistCare to acquire three aged care sites

Not-for-profit Christian-based care organisation, BaptistCare NSW & ACT, today announced that they have entered into an agreement to acquire three aged care sites located in the Central West of NSW and South West Sydney.

The acquired locations are Kintyre Living Retirement Village and Lodge in Dubbo, Blue Hills Retirement Village and Manor in Prestons and Durham Green Retirement Village, Manor and Lodge in Menangle. Each location has a retirement home and aged care home and will complement BaptistCare’s existing presence in these regions, the aged care provider said in a statement today.

Owned and operated by Tulich Family Communities, the three sites comprise 251 residential aged care beds and 410 independent living units, with just over 240 staff providing care and services to 650 residents.

BaptistCare said it would offer work to all existing staff and take over operation of the three sites in late March.

BaptistCare chief executive Charles Moore said the acquisitions were part of a deliberate growth strategy centered on improving care for an increasing number of aging Australians.

“Due to increasing regulatory pressure, funding challenges, staffing crunch and changing customer demands, we are now seeing greater consolidation in the sector. At BaptistCare, our focus is on expanding our services within geographic clusters where we have a footprint, with like-minded organizations that will enhance the continuum of care we can offer our residents and clients across NSW and the ACT,” said he said.

Tulich Family Communities co-founder Mr Maurice Tulich said the sale marked the end of an era in Dubbo, Prestons and Menangle for the family-owned organisation, but he was confident BaptistCare would continue to make residents and staff a priority.

They share our values ​​and principles and will continue to deliver the standard and quality of care for which our facilities have become known,” he said.

“We are extremely proud of what we have achieved at Prestons, Menangle and Dubbo, but as a family-owned organization we have to make decisions at this time that are in the best interests of our family.”
