Balhousie Care Group appoints new Deputy Chief Executive
As reported in Business Insider (6 Jan), Balhousie Care Group, Scotland's largest private care provider and CeeD member, have appointed a new Deputy Chief Executive - John Kirk.
John was most recently the managing director at HC-One’s 56 Scottish care homes and is also vice chair at trade body Scottish Care. He worked in financial services before moving into the healthcare sector, joining Allied Healthcare in 2010.
He became managing director of Four Seasons Health Care Group in 2014, and in 2018 took up the same role with HC-One.
John will take up the newly-created role of deputy chief executive to help grow Balhousie's portfolio, which features 26 elderly and specialist care facilities across six regions of Scotland.
The group is planning to build new care homes in Callander, Dundee and Perth, along with extensions to two of its most popular care homes: Balhousie Moyness in Broughty Ferry and Balhousie Wheatlands in Bonnybridge.
It is also planning an expansion of its supported living services in Coupar Angus, which operates under the specialist care brand ASC.
“Despite the instability of the last two years and the pandemic, Balhousie Care Group’s financial performance is strong and we remain committed to both expanding and enhancing our portfolio of care facilities.
“John has the right mix of operations, finance and business growth experience to help us achieve our goals and we are delighted to have him on board.”
“I am proud to be joining a team of truly committed and talented staff at Balhousie Care Group and to help shape the company for its next 30 years in business, establishing Balhousie as the leader in its field in Scotland.”
